Solarize your community
Benefits for the neighbourhood
We believe in the power of community
That’s why we offer big savings to neighbours who purchase multiple systems during the same period. The more neighbours who participate, the more everyone saves.
Benefits of Community Solar
No property space necessary
A shared solar system allows homeowners who live in condos or apartments without an obstruction free southern roof exposure to invest in solar.
Produce cheaper options
Increasing and standardizing large installations reduces the cost, making the economics of solar even stronger. Combining resources allows communities the ability to generate economies of scale.
Protect from rising power costs
Power companies across the country have increased rates drastically since 2006. With a new carbon tax and aging infrastructure looming, this cost is likely to continue to trend upwards. Lock in with Solar.
Protect the environment
The average solar system saves 2,500 trees, or the same as driving 450,000 km. You can help create a brighter tomorrow while saving money.
How does it work?
There are many different models that can be effective for community solar even above and beyond individual and group ownership, from group pricing to building one larger system that a group of individuals can invest in together, each investor owning a percentage or a number of panels.
Adoption rates are incredibly high in areas that already have solar power. One street in Saskatoon now has six installations by miEnergy!
Register the community / neighbourhood
miEnergy will work with a community representative to get all interested parties registered with miEnergy. This “Community Lead” will realize additional savings.
Once registered, miEnergy will work with the Community Lead to coordinate information sessions, allowing all interested neighbours a chance to ask questions and learn how solar can help them save.
Interested residents are enrolled in the program using a unique community code. Anyone interested within the community can enroll.
The work begins!
Once the resident has enrolled, the sales and installation process proceeds as per usual.
Final payment is requested at an individual’s project completion.
At expiry of your Community program, miEnergy will total the number of projects contracted during the 30-day period and apply a rebate to each account. A cheque will be issued within 30 days.
