The local community benefits from the solar project through a community solar program and the clean energy generated (7 MWdc) by the project and sent directly to the grid for distribution.

Subscriptions to the community solar program offer up to a 10% discount on electricity costs and are open for local businesses, government agencies, and residents in the same utility region.
