MGED Smart Energy CommunityMGED Solar Community - Community Shared SolarMGED Solar Community Project 1 Everett Street Storage

MGED's community shared solar program, Solar Community, allows customers who want to support locally produced clean energy but aren’t able or don’t wish to install solar panels on their own home or business the opportunity to share in the benefits of a large solar system installed within MGED’s service territory. 

Participating customers share in both the costs and the benefits of Solar Community. MGED customers who wish to participate pay a monthly fee for costs associated with the program. Starting in the second year, participating customers are expected to begin receiving credits on their bill.
