The 26kW system located atop the Holiday Apartments went LIVE in late November and has been producing clean, locally generated, renewable energy for the grid ever since! You can view real-time data from the system here.


If you’ve already signed up, spread the word to your neighbors, friends and family! Consider sharing on facebook, twitter or via email.

Community Solar is a way for residents to participate and receive the benefits of solar without having their own solar arrays on their roof—and in this case also supports a great cause! Here’s how it works:

  1. Buy Solar Units: Any City Light customer can sign up, starting at $150
  2. Get Paid Back: Earn your investment back via credits on your bill until 2020
  3. Feel Good: This project produces clean energy, supports the regional economy (all of the system components and labor are locally sourced!), and will be donated to Capitol Hill Housing in 2020 to reduce the long-term operating costs of affordable housing.
