Save More with Community Solar
Your subscription to community solar through Clean Energy Connection allows you to enjoy solar power without any of the traditional equipment and installation costs. Income-qualified customers earn bill credits that are greater than the fee to subscribe, so your savings from solar start from day one of your subscription. Your current participation in any of these or related programs can be used to qualify you completely online: Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), SNAP-EBT, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), and Duke Energy Neighborhood Energy Saver.
