Community Solar Program

Many residential utility customers want to do their part to lower emissions, improve air quality in their community, and protect the planet, but they aren’t sure how to get started. Most have heard of solar energy, but some aren’t candidates for solar panels because they’re renting, or they live in a multi-tenant building, or their roof simply can’t accommodate a solar system.

For these customers, MP2 is proud to offer the Community Solar program. By partnering with a solar farm in your community, we are able to deliver 100% renewable energy to meet 100% of your home’s energy needs. And getting started couldn’t be easier.

Why Get Power from a Solar Farm?

Here’s how signing up for an off-site, shared solar program will brighten your day:

  • There are no upfront fees, you can start saving immediately.
  • Switching from your current retail electricity provider is fast and easy.
  • Solar power is one of the cleanest forms of energy, using less fossil fuels and producing less CO2 than other energy sources.
  • A low, fixed rate helps you save money and avoid price fluctuations. 
  • When the sun isn’t shining, you stay green--MP2 buys 100% renewable energy from other Texas sustainability projects for any necessary electricity that can’t be supplied by community solar.
  • Buying local supports your community. 
  • Every additional community solar customer supports the development of more solar farms and broadens accessibility to green energy.

Locally Sourced Solar Power for Houston Residents - Local Sun

As MP2 is headquartered in The Woodlands, we’ve started by partnering with a solar farm in nearby Sealy, Texas named Local Sun. With 15,000 solar panels on 12 acres of land, the family-run farm has the capacity to power 300 area homes with “farm-to-market” solar energy. The project utilizes distributed generation, which means the panels connect directly to the grid and the short distance to customers minimizes risk and transmission problems.

Local Sun shares our passion for connecting customers with low-cost renewable power without the need for equipment or long-term contracts. By subscribing to this plan, Houston-area residents provide support for Local Sun's outreach efforts to encourage sustainability education in the community.

How Does it Work?

  • 1 Switch to solar by emailing residential@mp2energy.com.
  • 2 When the sun shines and the solar farm is generating power, MP2 buys that power and seamlessly directs it to your home. No special equipment needed. 
  • 3 When it’s cloudy, nighttime, or your electricity demand outstrips solar supply, MP2 buys as much power from other renewable sources such as wind as you need to power your home.

Local Sun is a 1.5 megawatt solar project that took four months to construct. Check out the video for an inside look at the construction process.
