Send us your name, email, address, and electricity provider.
A member of our team will give you a call within 24 hours to ask you about your historic electrical usage.
From there, you’ll purchase your panel according to the amount of energy you need, and we’ll get your panel set up in a local community solar farm. Once you’re switched over, you’ll be powered by solar energy.
Community Solar is a green alternative to your traditional electric supply method, without installing solar panels on your property. We have solar farms all across NY harnessing the power of the sun to supply clean energy to community solar subscribers. Customers can save between 5-15% on monthly electric bills, depending on the utility. Reduce your carbon footprint and save money by choosing a shared renewable energy source.
It’s simple. All you have to do is reserve your spot by submitting your information above and let us know your historical electric usage.
From there, we’ll connect you with other community solar subscribers and get you hooked up to a community solar site. You’ll get to watch the entire process unfold. We’ll send you updates as your farm is built, then connect with your power company to get you switched over to solar once your site is live.
When you’re set up, we’ll shoot you a quick email to let you know. You will have a separate bill from Monolith than your utility.
Service is available by load zone. Here’s where community solar is currently available:
• Load Zone A (Buffalo area) National Grid & NYSEG

If community solar isn’t currently available in your area, never fear! We’re constantly partnering with land owners to produce new solar farms across New York state. If you’re interested in community solar, click here to stay informed.
Your utility company stays the same. We partner with local power companies to provide solar energy for community solar members.
Monolith is a leading provider of solar in New York State. You may recognize some of our clients, like KeyBank, ShopRite, NYSDOT, Harley Davidson, Siena College, and so many more. We’re so dedicated to our customers, we consider them family.
Every month, you’ll receive a certain percentage of your community solar farm’s generation in the form of energy credits. The amount of credits will vary throughout the year—increasing in the summer and decreasing in the winter—but the excess generated in the summer will carry over to the winter. Because we size your system to meet your demonstrated historical energy needs, your energy credits should fully cover your power bill for the year. With a purchased system, these credits belong to you and will give you “free” energy once you’ve paid off your panels. With a subscription, you’ll only pay for 90% of the energy credits received, meaning you’ll always have that 10% to keep.
We get it – there are some horror stories out there about people who have transitioned to solar, expecting to save money, and it didn’t happen. Here’s the great thing about community solar: You’re not buying a panel or paying for installation. You’re simply purchasing your energy from solar instead of dirty coal and gas. There’s no risk involved.
Monolith Solar is more than a company, it’s a movement—a cause by which employees, partners, municipalities, and customers all work together to innovate and create solutions for a sustainable planet by making smart energy choices.
Whether we’re addressing major global problems like air pollution or helping a small local family save on their monthly electric bills, solar is our solution.
All that to say – we care about the work we do, and we’ve got the portfolio to prove we’re the real deal.
