Alliant Energy® Community Solar

Community solar helps bring together people with a common interest in powering their homes and businesses with solar energy.

Not every location is ideal for solar panels, nor is it always easy to install your own. We’re here to help make solar simple and accessible for everyone.

With community solar, you can buy blocks (% share) in a local solar project up to 100% of your energy use.

  • Get paid for being green. Receive a monthly bill credit for each block you own for 20 years. The credit is based on solar production – sunnier days mean a bigger credit.
  • Hassle-free renewable energy. No additional space or maintenance required.
