We will review your annual electricity usage and assign you a share of a local community solar garden serving Kennebunk, Maine. We will then communicate to your utility company that you will be receiving a portion of the solar garden’s production each month.
Your portion of power will be received as “solar energy credits”.
Our solar energy credits will appear on your electric bill to offset the final balance you owe your utility.
After you receive your monthly credits, you’ll receive a bill from us for your subscription. We’ll charge you at a discount based on your credits’ value. You’ll save an estimated 10% of your annual electricity costs.
When you join a solar farm in Kennebunk, Maine with Ampion, you can always view your solar production, cost savings, and environmental impact with our online portal.
