Our Mission

Based in Washington, D.C., SaveSolar specializes in financing and developing community solar, raising the revenue of building owners and saving community members money on their electric bills. The clean solar energy we help generate is sent back into the utility and provided at a discount to residential, low-income and community subscribers. Our mission is to help D.C. reach its renewable energy goals and to lower the cost of electricity.

How Does Community Solar Work?

SaveSolar develops community solar systems in order to offer discounted energy to all D.C. residents (including renters) but also those in apartments, homes, low-income housing or community residents who may not be able to install solar on their own roofs due to affordability or tree cover.

We achieve this by leasing building rooftops, developing solar assets and compensating owners for the rooftop lease in order to deliver energy to the utility.
