Available to all
Ampion is available to homeowners, renters and just about anyone who pays a utility bill, making it easy to take part in sustainable change and access real savings.
How Community Solar works
Sign up for free to become an Ampion member in as little as 5 minutes with your utility bill (to calculate your energy usage and savings)
Ampion matches you to a solar farm and assigns you a share of the electricity it generates based on your typical usage
The solar farm produces clean energy and delivers it to the grid, increasing the renewable energy available to your community and boosting sustainability
Renewable energy credits are applied to your bill each month based on your share of the solar energy produced, significantly reducing what you pay your utility
You pay for the renewable energy credits at a discounted rate, lowering your electricity costs and saving you money month after month
Public benefit corporporation
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.
Still have questions?
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.
Will my electric company change?
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.
What does it cost, & how much money will I save?
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.
What happens if I move?
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.
