Community Solar Washington is an advocacy effort to pass legislation creating a Community Solar Program.

Under the proposed program, electric consumers may participate in a community solar project and receive a monthly credit on their utility bill for the electricity produced by their project. The program expands solar access to marginalized communities, renters, and homes or businesses unfit for solar.

Community Solar works great in Oregon!

Community solar programs are growing all over the country with programs in twenty-two states. The Oregon program ( opened in 2020.

Most simply, community solar is solar energy that is generated from a central location and shared by multiple owners or subscribers. That means you don’t need your own rooftop panels to get the benefits of solar. 

Our Policy Goals:

  • Improve solar access for low income households, renters, and marginalized communities

  • Catalyze new investment in clean energy

  • Create good paying jobs and expand Washington’s solar market

  • Allow consumers to choose local clean energy resources
