Clean Energy Collective (CEC), North America’s leading community solar developer and solutions provider, is now accepting reservations in New York for its popular RooflessSolar program. One of the most highly sought-after programs in the state, RooflessSolar provides qualified Orange & Rockland and Central Hudson residential electricity customers guaranteed, risk-free savings with no upfront cost or recurring fees – plus the proven local economic and environmental benefits community-shared solar delivers.
How it works
CEC’s RooflessSolar program, now active in 15 states, enables anyone with an electric bill – particularly homeowners lacking a suitable roof, those who rent, or live in a multi-unit building – a way to lower their monthly electric bill, protect against rising electricity costs, help reduce CO2 emissions, and lower the nation’s dependence on fossil fuels. Participants earn a guaranteed savings of $0.01 for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) of energy, regardless of whether they are working with an alternative energy provider. For the typical household, this means saving about $100 each year, or about one-month’s utility bill every year – guaranteed for the life of the program.
Qualifying residential electricity customers in Orange & Rockland and Central Hudson service areas can enroll in a RooflessSolar plan, customized to their electricity use, through CEC’s easy e-commerce portal (ny.rooflesssolar.com). Participants can also view their energy production, energy credits, and environmental offsets in real time through a dedicated online app at MyOwnCleanEnergy.com.
New York opened the door to community shared solar as part of its Reforming the Energy Vision initiative to build a cleaner, more resilient, more affordable energy infrastructure. CEC’s New York portfolio includes 22 medium-scale, strategically sited solar facilities that are built with leading-edge technology and are professionally maintained to ensure maximum production and consumer benefit. Host communities also benefit through significant construction investment, high-value jobs, lease payments to land owners, local tax revenues, and developer-funded utility system upgrades.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
