Community solar phase two

Community solar has been so popular that we are doing it again. In November 2018, Vera Water and Power announced Phase Two Community Community Solar.

Here’s how the Phase Two Community Solar Project works for those joining:

  • 14.4-kiloWatt solar system
  • Projected to produce 18,519 kilowatt-hours of electricity
  • Projected lifetime of the project is 8 years
  • 200 total solar blocks
  • $100 per solar block
  • Limit of 20 solar blocks per household*

The production numbers

One solar block equals

  • 92.58 kilowatts (estimated annual production, subject to variables)

You pay

$100 per block. This is a nonrefundable, one-time payment. These are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Your potential credit**

  1. A credit from Washington state of $0.21 per kilowatt-hour on each block’s annual production for a period of time up to eight years or until total credits amongst participants reaches 50 percent of the entire project cost
  2. A per kilowatt credit from Vera Water and Power on your block(s)’s annual production. In 2019, that will be $0.035 per kWh.
