About the Rhode Island Community Solar Marketplace
In 2017, Governor Raimondo issued polices with a goal of 1,000MW of clean energy by 2020. The Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources (OER) is working to ensure not only that the goal is met, but that solar is an option for all Rhode Islanders. This requires new approaches to solar, including community solar opportunities, for customers that do not have a traditional “good site” for solar, tenants of multifamily buildings, condo owners, and low/moderate income (LMI) households. Made possible by US Department of Energy funding through a SES grant from the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA), OER has developed the Community Solar Marketplace to realize greater access to community solar in Rhode Island.
This online community solar marketplace, hosted by OER, links potential community solar customers with existing community solar projects actively seeking subscribers and provides resources for Rhode Islanders to learn more about community solar. Please explore our website and sign up for our e-mailing list to receive updates and information about community solar in Rhode Island.
