Community Distributed Generation
Renewable, accessible energy.
PSEG Long Island is proud to support a brand new way for our customers to take advantage of the savings and environmental benefits that renewable energy provides.
It’s called Community Distributed Generation (CDG) and it makes renewable energy, particularly solar power, more accessible to more people than ever before. That’s why it’s sometimes known as shared renewable energy. CDG removes obstacles like lack of financing or being in a location that’s not suitable for solar panels.
Traditionally, a renewable energy source, like solar panels, generates power for the single home or business where it was installed. CDG can expand the benefits of renewable energy to customers well beyond where the energy source is located. For example, multiple customers can save money on their electric bills thanks to energy credits generated by one, large solar array located elsewhere. The array would be managed by a “host” that enrolls customers and acts as a liaison with PSEG Long Island.
PSEG Long Island is committed to offering our customers as many ways to save money as possible. CDG provides that, while also helping to expand the use of cleaner, greener energy that will reduce energy costs and environmental impact well into the future.
