For Kelissa S. it was an easy decision. “I’m all about saving money. I have a tight budget; I figured even if it only saved me five dollars a month, five dollars is five dollars.” So she signed up to receive net metering solar credits as part of BlueHub’s Onset Shared Solar Program, which generates solar energy offsite, then sells the credits at a discount to nearby affordable housing developments. As a bonus, residents of two of those developments can sign up to have a percentage of the credits applied to their monthly electricity bills.
Kelissa learned about the program when the property manager slid a letter under her door. “I thought, ‘Why not try it?’ I called a number and gave them my information. It was really easy to sign up.” Kelissa saw immediate savings on her bill.
