Hanover Township is excited to share information about the New Jersey Community Solar Program and the projects available to our residents, especially those living in affordable housing communities and residents on a fixed income.
The state has approved a community solar project in Hanover Township to begin servicing residents. The project, which was authorized by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities and built with a resolution (27-2021) of support from the Township Committee and Township administration, will bring cleaner air to our community and save residents money on their electricity costs.
Residents can now apply to start gaining the benefits of solar energy without installing panels on their roofs. With community solar, you receive a portion of your electricity from the local clean energy projects at a 25% discount. This option is available to both renters and homeowners and is designed to bring lower costs and access for all our residents.
Your electricity service is still provided as normal by JCP&L and there are no fees to enroll or leave the Community Solar program, and you may cancel at any time.
If you're interested in saving money and supporting actions for renewable energy, you must act quickly: There are only enough spots to serve the usage of the first 300 households that sign up. Additionally, 51 % of the households that participate in the program must qualify as low to moderate income.
Joining a Community Solar project is easy: Go to www.arcadia.com/SL25 and use the invite code HTGREEN.
