The Village of Brockport, along with the Village of Lima, are bringing community solar to all eligible residents and small businesses. As a result of rulings from the Public Service Commission, and actions taken by the municipalities, the villages are on a path to implement an opt-out community solar program.
The benefit of the program includes guaranteed annual savings of eight to ten percent off of the entire electric bill for program participants. In addition, no action will be needed on the part of the eligible customers in order to participate. There are no additional contracts, credit checks, or bills. Participants will continue to receive a utility bill from National Grid, and a new line item will appear in the miscellaneous section. The new line will show a price reduction and will likely be called “CDG value stack credit,” the formal language for savings from a community solar field. National Grid’s role remains unchanged.
