What’s the advantage to buying into shared solar instead of installing my own?

It's far less expensive and doesn't require a large space or roof. MGED Solar Community projects are designed to provide an opportunity to share in the benefits of locally produced power from a solar array without a major investment. It will give participants the chance to see for themselves how this power affects their bill and compares to the cost of our typical energy supplies. And if you want to install or lease your own solar array, you can do that too.
