Tipmont members may purchase the energy from up to 10 solar panels, but not exceeding ½ of your annual electric usage. A small portion (not to exceed $5 per month, per panel) of your monthly energy usage comes from the solar array. For this portion, you pay the solar energy rate vs. the retail energy rate.
There are essentially two paths for joining the Community Solar program: paying up front (Upfront Payment and Easy Pay) and paying as you go (PPA). Use the information below to help you decide which option is right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
For those paying upfront, Tipmont will measure the daily and monthly electricity generated by the 240 panels of the solar array. Each Community Solar member will receive credit for 1/240 of the kWhs produced. Those kWhs will be calculated using your current electric rate and a credit will be added to your monthly bill.
Based on research and actual data from similar arrays, members can expect an average of $5 credit per month during the first year of the program.
For less than $5 a month you can use clean, renewable energy as a part of your home’s monthly energy consumption. The benefit of Community Solar is knowing you are making the responsible choice in how you use energy, and that you’re helping usher in a brighter tomorrow.
For those paying for their panel upfront, by purchasing the output from a solar panel now, you are setting the price for a portion of your electric needs for the next 25 years. As electric rates rise, so will your Community Solar energy credits.
