"This program is a really nice thing! I didn’t believe it in the beginning, it seemed too good to be true."
"This is a fantastic program; it's really great and I wouldn't even think about messing with my discount."
"JOE-4-SUN is a wonderful program... I wish more people knew about the program, it has helped me so much."
"Mr. Kennedy’s program has changed so many lives... I want to let everyone know how amazing this program is. You might get tired of hearing it, but you guys are all little angels."
"I would urge anybody who has the opportunity to join this program to join it."
"During the winter my electric cost is fairly low but in the summer it goes up... the savings are great. It makes quite a difference. Installing panels on my house was not an option, so JOE-4-SUN gave me the option of taking advantage of solar."
"I've actually helped other people sign up for the program. It helps you and your bills because of the savings on electricity, and it's green energy."
"A friend of mine told me about it. I am telling you from experience that the savings are pretty good, especially in the summer for me because my energy bill was so much lower."
No, JOE-4-SUN is not a utility company or energy supplier. You will continue to receive an electric bill from your utility as usual. JOE-4-SUN is a low-income community solar program that works with your utility to reduce your total balance due by applying credits to your electric bill.
JOE-4-SUN will save you hundreds per year on electricity—up to 20% in New York and over $300 in Massachusetts—and connect you to the green energy revolution. You will receive discounted bill credits on your utility bill, which are generated by clean, renewable energy at our solar farms. JOE-4-SUN provides all the benefits of solar energy without the hassle of rooftop panels
As a JOE-4-SUN subscriber, you earn bill credits from the energy produced by our solar farms. Every unit of electricity we produce is assigned a dollar value by the utility and that total dollar amount is given to our local subscribers as bill credits that lower their utility bills. These credits reduce what you owe to your energy company each month. In our pay-as-you-go program, JOE-4-SUN then invoices you separately for the bill credits you have already received at a 50% discount. We are actively working with the state to simplify this system. In the meantime, we are here to answer any questions you may have.
The value of the credits you receive each month will vary based on the weather and solar production. You can expect a higher credit value in the summer when we produce more solar power and a lower value in the winter, but the total annual savings you see will be between $300 and $400 in Massachusetts, or about $200 in New York.
After you are accepted into JOE-4-SUN, we will send your account to the utility. You will see savings on your bill after being processed and assigned to one of our solar arrays by your utility, which takes 1-2 billing cycles.
