Our Commitment to Solar Energy


Our first projects to harness the power of the sun were installed more than 10 years ago, and today our 70 MW solar portfolio generates enough electricity to power more than 11,000 homes. 

We are committed to educating our communities on solar power generation and helping our customers understand the potential that solar generation represents for infusing the grid with renewable energy.

We are optimistic in forging partnerships with the communities we serve to develop, own and operate solar projects paired with energy storage — a dynamic solution for supporting community climate resilience and reducing peak demand.

We also manage solar incentive programs for developing photovoltaic systems, which can lower energy costs for participating customers and support the region's climate goals. To date, Eversource customers have installed panels generating 1.9 gigawatts of solar energy.

We work proactively to support policies in our states to sustain the growth of the solar market through long-term system planning and cost-effective investments. We are launching a community solar program in Connecticut and have proposed a new community solar initiative in Massachusetts to help lower barriers to solar access for low income customers.
