Get to Know Your Solar Farm!

The Athens Community Solar Farm provides a 10% discount on the clean energy generated by a subscriber's share of the panels. Anyone who pays a Central Hudson Gas & Electric bill could be saving 10% on energy costs with community solar, whether you're a residential subscriber who lives in an apartment or rented home or you're a small commercial business, faith group, or nonprofit organization (mass market).

New Yorkers benefit from consolidated billing as a part of state policy, so your community solar savings will appear directly on the electricity bill you're already getting each month from Central Hudson. The Athens Community Solar Farm will be hard at work turning sunshine into savings for its subscribers, generating enough local solar energy to power 1,250 residential home equivalents. By signing up, you're joining the collective force of your local community to show that you won't stand for the fossil fuel industry putting pollution and profit over the needs of people and the planet. 

Neighborhood Sun has saved our subscribers over $2 Million in energy costs by allowing them to tap into the benefits of community solar. Join us to start saving and making a difference in your community with each electricity bill.
