What Is Community Solar?

It’s the easiest and most immediate way to transition to cleaner energy sources while saving money.​

Community Solar: the easy, climate-friendly energy option that saves you money.

Ampion connects people with local solar farms, making it easy to access clean, safe, renewable solar energy, with no installations, fees, or fuss.

Mention solar energy and most people will immediately picture those panels popping up on roofs all over their neighborhood. However, for many people, rooftop solar is not a viable option. A solar farm provides people with an easy way to benefit from solar energy without putting panels on their roof.

A solar farm, sometimes called a solar garden, is a power plant whose electricity is generated by capturing energy from the sun. The electricity is then distributed via the utility grid. People can subscribe to a solar farm and receive a credit on their electricity bills for their share of the power produced.

Community Solar is the smart choice.

Easy Sign up

Sign up for free to become an Ampion member in as little as 5 minutes. Ampion matches you to a solar farm and assigns you a share of the electricity it generates based on your typical usage.


Energy Production

The solar farm produces clean energy and delivers it to the grid where it can be used by local customers. Your utility company applies credits to your bill based on your portion of the energy generated by the solar farm. This reduces your bill. Any unused credits roll over to the next month.


Save Money & Help the Environment

Each month after the bill credits from your solar farm have been applied to your utility bill, you’ll pay Ampion at a discounted rate for every dollar of billing credit received. You save money month after month and help build a more sustainable community!
