Editor’s Note: The Community Solar program link in this article has been updated to reflect the correct website address.
The Town of Lodi with its Clean Energy Communities (CEC) Task Force is offering residents the opportunity to save money on their electric bill and improve the environment by increasing the use of clean, climate-friendly energy. Signing up for community solar using locally operated solar farms and the existing power grid instead of solar panels on your property, Ampion Renewable Energy offers the easiest way to transition to clean energy sources.
Community Solar is available to homeowners, renters and businesses looking to save money on their electric bill with the use of sunlight as the source of climate friendly renewable energy. There will be a 10% discount on your supply charge each month.
Through this program, for a limited time, every new approved subscriber who signs up for Community Solar through this link will receive a $100 Visa gift card.
The Task Force is conducting several programs in the Lodi community to earn grant funding by completing tasks that conserve energy, help prepare for environmental changes and develop a healthier community.
Among the many activities being conducted in Lodi are a Reuse/Swap Day, training for Climate Stewards, studying emergency preparedness plans and conducting a survey to determine needed flood mitigation practices, adopting safety projects with the “Complete Streets” protocol, conducting educational programs for protecting our Finger Lakes water sources, installation of Electric Vehicle charging stations and offering community solar energy options.
Clean Energy Communities certification and being a Climate Smart Community helps Lodi residents save money, protects the local water sources and improves the environment.
