How it Works
Participants subscribed to a shared GMP solar array at no cost, and receive a discount for your electricity usage when the solar array is generating. Maximize your savings by shifting consumption to sunny hours of the day when the shared array is making power!
- 4 cent/kWh discount is available to customers receiving EAP benefits
- 8 cent/kWh discount is available to all other income-eligible customers.
Pilot program runs from April 2022- October 2023.
This program is now full. Participants are income eligible if:
- Your household receives seasonal fuel assistance,
- Your gross household income is equal to or less than 185% of the federal poverty level based on household size.
Over the course of a year, an average participant can expect to save about $150, or even more if you shift usage.
You can opt out at any time without penalty. You will keep any credits you have already earned in the current billing period.
No, there are no costs to participants.
Yes, if you are receiving EAP benefits, you will continue to receive those benefits and the Sun Match discount will be in addition to EAP.
Run any large appliances (dishwasher, washing machine, dryer) when the sun is shining. Charge your electronics in the middle of the day rather than at night. Precool your home with air conditioning before the sun goes down.
No, you will be sharing an existing GMP solar array with the other participants in the pilot.
