Community Solar Project Requirements

Applications for community solar projects must be made by an Approved Vendor and community solar projects have additional terms and conditions compared to distributed generation projects.

The community solar standard disclosures and marketing material guidelines have been finalized. The finalized documents have been published here. You can view the stakeholder process for document review here.

Due to the expected very high interest in community solar projects that will likely exceed the available funding, the Agency and the Program Administrator have developed the details of the lottery procedure that will be used to select which projects are approved for REC contracts. The final lottery procedures are located in the Program Guidebook.
