Wednesday, May 17 at 6:30 pm
for a Virtual Town Hall on Community Solar in Ohio.
We need your help to organize for success!
What is Community Solar?
Community solar refers to a solar array that generates energy for consumers in a defined area. Community solar projects are small scale installations that allow anyone to realize the benefits of solar energy, not just homeowners who can afford their own solar installation. Community solar is a proven, cost-effective solution to broaden access to clean energy and produce utility bill savings for families, small businesses, and public service organizations. Community solar customers are basically “subscribers” who receive credits on their electricity bills, at lower cost!
What’s Happening in Ohio?
Some of you worked for passage of a community solar bill last year. The good news is that a new bill will soon be introduced in the Ohio House of Representatives. The proposal would create a Community Solar Pilot Program in our state, and is expected to garner bi-partisan support. This is an exciting opportunity to make community solar a reality in Ohio, so come to the meeting to learn more about the bill and how you can help make change happen.
No worries if you can’t make this first meeting. There will be plenty of opportunities to engage with this important work. Join the Solar United Neighbors Community Solar Action Team. You’ll be a critical part of moving this legislation forward in Ohio!
