Empire Housing and Development Corporation is a not-for-profit developer of affordable housing. Part of making homes affordable and sustainable includes keeping utility costs for households as low as possible.
With that in mind, Empire is pleased to be partnering with Ampion’s Community Solar Program to provide homeowners with 10% savings on electricity costs. This is an easy, no cost way for you to save on your monthly utility bill and help the environment at the same time by supporting the use of cleaner energy and reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. And for a limited time, every approved customer who signs up for Community Solar through this page will receive a $100 Visa gift card.* It’s our way of saying thank you for supporting the growth of renewable energy.
*(Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery of the gift card by mail from time of approved sign up. Cannot be combined with any other offer.)
Ampion connects people with local solar farms, making it easy to access clean, safe, renewable solar energy, with no installations, fees, or fuss.
Ampion’s mission is to make it easy for everyone to access clean, renewable energy. As a Public Benefit Corporation, our success is defined by how well we serve the greater good, not just the profits we earn.
That’s ok, Community Solar is new to most people. Lots of our customers had questions before they signed up so we compiled a list of some of the most common questions below.
No. Your current utility will still service your account and deliver energy to your home or business. Any energy consumption that isn’t covered by your energy credits will be paid to the utility at their price.
There is no cost to join our community solar program. You will receive a monthly invoice for the energy credits, produced by your solar farm and applied to your utility bill, at a discounted rate.
If you are moving to a residence that is still in the area of eligibility, you can take your subscription with you! As long as you reside in the same utility service territory, you can continue to be a part of your project.
You can start by filling out the form at the top of this page. The sign up process takes about five minutes and you will need a copy of your electric bill.
