This is not rooftop solar! No solar panels are installed on your roof or property, and there are no buy-in fees to subscribe to community solar.
If you move and you are still a customer of the same utility, your subscription moves with you! If you move outside the utility, you can cancel free and clear.
If you have power through a retail electric supplier, you can still sign up for one of our community solar projects. No need to cancel your supply contract - you’re all set!
Located on the Pemaquid Peninsula, this 4800 kW Community Solar Project is NWF Certified Wildlife Habitat and a sustainable energy option for residents in midcoastal Maine. Developed in tandem with MidCoast Solar, these 12,000+ photovoltaic modules in Bristol will produce enough clean energy to significantly reduce harmful carbon emissions in the region. This lobster, fishing, and oystering community knows that a clean, pollutant-free environment is important to Mainer livelihoods. Subscribers to the Bristol I solar plant will not only reduce their utility costs, but also contribute to creating a more sustainable community.Sign Up Learn More

When you sign up for a community solar project, you will receive credits each month on your electricity bill. These credits go toward offsetting the cost of your bill, allowing you to save money and contribute to a more sustainable future. It's that simple. Here are the three easy steps to make it happen.
Fill out a subscription form with basic details (name, email, etc.) and have a recent electricity bill handy. As you continue your registration, you’ll have to enter your utility account number and energy usage information so we can determine the right amount of the solar project to allocate to your bill.
Once you’ve subscribed, you will be given access to a personal dashboard where you can see the project's solar energy production, your document library (contract, bills, etc.) and your monthly savings.
You will start seeing savings on your electricity bill a month after your community solar project becomes operational.
