What is happening
We’re advocating to enable independent community solar in Indiana. It’s clear that local clean energy is our future, but it needs to be the future for every day Hoosiers—not just big companies and utilities.
Our shared vision is a statewide policy that supports:
- Community and other independent ownership of community solar
- Tangible savings for subscribers
- Competitive and transparent markets for community solar development
- Equitable access to the benefits of community solar for all Hoosiers
Community solar can benefit Hoosiers
Community solar offers the benefit of solar to those who can’t, or prefer not to, install panels on their own home. Community solar allows individuals, businesses, or organizations to subscribe to a “share” in a local solar project. When you join a community solar project, you receive a credit on your electric bill each month. The size of your share determines how much credit you receive.
Community solar can provide meaningful savings on utility bills, usually from 10-20%. Community solar projects also create real, local economic impacts, creating jobs and building wealth in the communities where the project is built. Community solar programs are available in 22 states. Unfortunately, it is currently not legal in Indiana.
That’s why we are organizing a movement of solar supporters in Indiana to bring community solar to our state – take action by filling out the form to the right.
