Enter your email and zip code to get started

Ampion connects people in Maryland with Community Solar farms to lower their energy costs and help the environment. Community Solar is the easiest way to support clean energy– and save up to 10% on your electric bills!

Now for a limited time, we're giving a $100 Visa gift card to every approved subscriber who signs up through this page!* It’s our way of saying thank you for supporting the growth of renewable energy in Maryland.

As energy rates increase around the country, Community Solar is a fast and easy way to offset some of those rising costs, providing reliable ongoing savings.

Without residents like you joining Community Solar, new solar farms won't be built. But as more Marylanders participate, the state gets closer to its ambitious goal of generating 50% of its electricity from clean renewable sources like solar by 2030, and 100% by 2040.

How Community Solar works

1

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)

2

Ampion matches you to a solar farm and assigns you a share of the Community Solar credits it generates based on your typical usage

3

The solar farm produces clean energy and delivers it to the grid, increasing the renewable energy available to your community and boosting sustainability

4

Community Solar credits are applied to your bill each month based on your share of the solar energy produced, reducing what you pay your utility

5

You pay for the Community Solar credits at a discounted rate, lowering your electricity bills and saving you money month after month

Public benefit corporporation

Still have questions?

That’s ok, Community Energy 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 enrolling here. The sign up process takes about five minutes and you will need a copy of your electric bill.

The short answer is almost anyone! As long as you have an active utility account, you’re eligible. There’s no special equipment to buy or install. Don’t own your property? No problem. Homeowners, renters, places of worship, municipalities and businesses can all support and benefit from Community Solar.

Yes. Subscribing to a solar farm while it is being developed is a way to reserve capacity for yourself. You will not be charged a subscription fee and you will not receive any Community Solar credits on your bill during the construction phase.

The Community Solar credits from your solar farm allotment are automatically applied to your monthly utility bill, reducing the total amount due. Bill credits offset all electricity costs: supply and delivery.

If you use more electricity than was generated on your behalf, the utility will invoice you for the difference. Use less electricity than your allotment generated and you may not owe the utility any money that month. Any remaining credits will be banked for future use subject to terms of the utility tariff.

Seasons have an impact on solar energy production. In the summer months, with longer and sunnier days, solar farms produce more electricity. In the winter, solar farms tend to produce less.
