  • Empowering our neighbors.

    Empowering our neighbors.

    When you subscribe to SharePower, we devote the solar savings to income-qualified “Empowered” subscribers. Empowered subscribers have household incomes that are significantly less than the area median income (AMI) and typically qualify for programs designated for “low- and moderate-income” (LMI) households. You get local clean power, and Empowered households get the deep energy bill savings they need.

    • Support energy equity by making solar savings available to people who need it
    • Increase clean energy access for historically underserved communities
    • Make a clear difference in your community
  • For example.

    For example.

    Fifty local households subscribe to SharePower from the community solar project located at the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Monastery in the District of Columbia.

    • 38 households subscribe and each pay $48.71 per month for 3 kW of solar capacity, which enables 12 Empowered subscribers to get a 3 kW subscription each at no cost.
    • All 50 subscribers get monthly solar credit on their utility bill based on how much energy their 3 kW subscription produces.
    • Everyone enjoys local clean power.
  • Prioritizing People. Serving with Joy.

    I have truly benefited from Groundswell providing me solar energy. The support team is great! They have taken me by the hand through the process and returned my calls, texts and/or emails to answer my questions/concerns, most times on the same day.

    Community solar has helped the congregation broaden its horizons to other grants and programs that can benefit the immediate neighborhood. It opened our congregation's eyes to other programs that we should try and ways to be more engaging.
