What is Community Solar?

Community solar is a green energy option that brings the benefits of solar to renters, homeowners and other community members without the upfront costs of installing your own panels. Instead, solar panels are located at a local community solar farm in New York. The solar power generated is delivered into your local power grid, and you receive dollar credits directly on your National Grid utility bill. The savings are automatic — all you need to do is enroll!


Solar energy is sent directly to National Grid, replacing carbon energy.


Our solar farms are located right here in New York, supporting the community.

Save up to 10%

For every $100 of solar credits earned, you pay as little as $90 — that’s a 10% discount applied directly to your National Grid bill.


Satisfaction guaranteed! Plus, feel great knowing you’re helping to keep our planet healthy.

How You Benefit

Our solar farms send clean power to the National Grid utility to be shared with the community. When you enroll with Onyx Renewables, your utility account will automatically be connected to our solar farm, saving you money directly on your National Grid electricity bill every month. 

Solar panels are located on our community solar farm roofs, not yours.

Green energy is sent directly to National Grid.

You earn solar credits toward your National Grid utility bill.


A 10% discount is applied directly to the solar credits on your National Grid bill.

How does the program work?

Enroll once, and your National Grid electricity account will be linked to Onyx’s community solar farm. It’s an easy way to save money on your electricity bills. Solar power goes from the solar farm to National Grid, where it helps power your community with planet-friendly renewable energy. As a subscriber, you get a piece of the clean energy incentives in the form of solar credits, which can contribute to up to a 10% discount off your utility bill.

Do I need to own my home or apartment to participate?

Nope! Renters and homeowners alike have access to community solar savings — no solar panel installation necessary!

How do I see my savings?

Each month, customers will see their discounted solar credits applied directly to their National Grid utility bill. This means Onyx customers receive only one consolidated bill from National Grid that shows their dollar savings and 10% discount.

Do I keep my utility provider?

Yes! There is no change or disruption to your electricity service. National Grid will remain your utility provider and continue to send a monthly bill. The only difference is, as an Onyx customer, you’ll automatically receive a 10% discount on the solar credits applied directly on your National Grid bill. 

Exact savings will vary depending on your energy usage each month.

Clean. Renewable. Efficient.
