Shaded roof? Renting? No worries! Now you can access the benefits of going solar by joining a local Community Solar Farm (CSF). Currently only available in Maine.
Community solar farms expand access to solar energy by eliminating the need to own your home or put solar panels on your roof. Join a solar farm built and maintained by ReVision Energy and enjoy many benefits of going solar - no roof needed.
How does it work? For community solar in Maine, ReVision Energy builds a large-scale, ownership model solar farm at an ideal solar location, working with the landowner or local organizations to responsibly site the project.
Power generated from the solar farm feeds into the grid, which is then distributed to the members of the CSF. Simply put, if the entire CSF is 1000 kW and you purchase a 10 kW share, then you own 1% of the solar farm. That 1% of the kWh produced by the solar farm shows up as credits on your electricity bill.
The ownership model that ReVision Energy offers allows CMP customers to achieve all the benefits of going solar, including the full Federal Tax Credit as well as the same net metering benefits you get from installing solar on your roof. Community solar farm ownership allows members to completely offset their monthly utility bills. If you can't or don't want to pay for your share entirely upfront, it can be financed through one of our lending partners.
We currently offer ownership-model solar farms for CMP customers and are selling shares for solar farms in development.

All solar farms developed by ReVision Energy keep the benefits of solar power local and invested in our communities, as well as helping local Mainers who host the solar farms, like farmer Peter Curra.
We have been building solar farms in Maine for over ten years— including the very first community-owned solar farm project in Maine! — and are comprised of 350+ employee-owners who live and work in our local communities. By joining a community solar farm through ReVision Energy, you’re ensuring that your energy savings are pushing forward the local clean energy movement and supporting local jobs in the process.

An essential step in designing a solar array is an evaluation of your electric needs. Uploading all pages of a recent electric bill will help jumpstart the process and lead to a more meaningful conversation when we connect with you!
