Solar Mosaic: Bring Solar to Your Community for Just $100

So what happens exactly when you buy a tile?

A Tile is a $100 share of the Solar Mosaic of your choice. The project host buys the clean electricity produced by your Tiles and saves money from day 1. You get paid back through the revenue the Tile generates and earn some fun goodies. After Tile purchasers are all paid back, additional revenue is paid forward to fund more community solar. Jobs are created, coal is kept in the ground, carbon pollution is avoided and money is kept in the community. It’s at least a win-win-win-win-win-win-win!

You can learn a lot more about this innovative program at the Solar Mosaic FAQ page.
