Altus Power develops Community Solar projects toward the goal of making renewable energy more accessible. Community Solar programs allow us to sell the energy we produce at a higher rate than we could have if we were just selling it directly to utilities, creating a win-win for Altus and our customers.
When customers subscribe, they will receive solar credits on their utility bill for the energy. The solar credits that customers receive are valued at a higher rate than the solar credits that Altus would directly receive. We share those profits with our customers by charging for the solar credits at a discount, leaving them with a portion of these solar credits. These remaining solar credits result in a savings on their utility bills.
