Evolving Net Zero Landscape
Companies worldwide are committing to Net Zero Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions based on the pre-pandemic established Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions classification.
Company-owned buildings and equipment
Company-used electricity and energy generation
Other indirect emissions
Supply chain, employee travel and embodied carbon
Employee commuting, energy footprint and waste
Scope 1, 2 & 3 Emissions are inclusive of direct, operations related and supply chain emissions. With the advent of “work from home” becoming more prevalent and companies reducing their office footprint, many experts are pushing for Scope four to include the emissions generated from work from home for non front line employees.

Depending on where you live and who your utility provider is, you will either receive a separate bill for the solar credits received at a discounted rate or have solar savings applied directly to your utility bill.
What will my bill look like?
In some states, you won't receive an additional bill, all savings received from the community solar farm appear directly on your utility bill and the utility pays us directly.
In other states, you could have dual billing, where you would pay us for the savings received on your utility bill at a discounted rate.
