CleanChoice Energy and New Columbia Solar have partnered to provide 1.825MW of proposed ‘Community Solar’ capacity available to residents of the District of Columbia, claimed to be the largest to date in the district.

Tom Matzzie, CEO of CleanChoice Energy said, “Bringing Community Solar to the District is hugely important. For too long most Washington D.C. residents had no real way to go solar. Community Solar changes that. It means that anyone–including people that live in apartments, or rent, or can’t install their own solar for any reason can still choose solar.” 

The CleanChoice Energy Community Solar platform is said to connect people to local Community Solar projects developed by New Columbia Solar, which enables residents and businesses to sign-up to support local solar and can generate up to a 5% saving on their utility bills with no upfront investment, setup fees or installation. 

“Today’s launch of nearly 2 megawatts of community solar by CleanChoice Energy and New Columbia Solar shows Mayor Bowser’s dedication to providing the benefits of locally generated solar energy to 100,000 low-income residents,” said Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) Director Tommy Wells.
