Solar Choice Program

Community Shared Solar

Participate in Solar without installing any panels!

RMLD's Community Shared Solar (CSS) program, Solar Choice, allows customers who want to support locally produced clean energy but aren’t able or don’t wish to install solar panels on their own home or business the opportunity to share in the benefits of a large solar system installed within RMLD’s service territory. 

Participating customers share in both the costs and the benefits of Solar Choice. RMLD customers who wish to participate pay a monthly fee for costs associated with the program. Starting in the second year, participating customers are expected to begin receiving credits on their bill.
