[ARCHIVED] 15% Savings for R2 Eversource Customers


Did you know Co-op Power and River Valley Co-op have teamed up to bring our low income friends and neighbors solar power at a discount?!

Participants in this program will receive a share of solar energy generated by the panels installed above the River Valley Co-op Easthampton store parking lot. You do not have to own a rooftop to join the solar revolution!

Whenever the sun shines, the majority of your electricity will be generated as solar power from Co-op Power and subtracted from your monthly Eversource bill. In addition, you will get a 15% discount on all solar power received through this program!

You must have a checking or savings account for online payments as well as an email address for billing purposes.

Only 100 subscriptions are available at this time, so if you are interested please do not hesitate to get more information ASAP (see below for resources)!

Who is Eligible?

To be eligible for this program, you must live in Western MA and qualify in one of these three ways:

  • You qualify for MassHealth, SNAP, LIHEAP or other social programs
  • You live in an Environmental Justice neighborhood that qualifies for this program. Qualifying zip codes are 01103, 01105, 01107 and 01109.
  • You have the low-income (R2) Electric Rate on your Eversource bill
