Community Solar in California: Help bring clean energy to your community

California landowners, leasing your land for community solar is the perfect way to contribute to a more sustainable future and enjoy a steady income for decades, all while retaining ownership of your land.


No maintenance required

REC Solar manages every aspect of the project, including construction, installation, ownership, operation and maintenance of the solar system. This helps to free up your time and resources for other activities.

Reliable monthly income

As part of your lease agreement, you will receive a fixed monthly payment over the life of your solar project. This provides you with a guaranteed, predictable income for 25+ years.

Rest and recovery for your land

Solar farms have a minimal impact on your land, so you can rest assured your property is resting and replenishing its nutrients. After your lease ends, we’ll remove all equipment from your land, returning it to you with its topsoil ready for the next chapter.


Explore the benefits of leasing your land—introducing solar benefits to your community, aiding neighbors in reducing energy costs and curbing carbon emissions, all while ensuring guaranteed revenue and preserving property ownership for future generations.

This is a great opportunity for landowners who:

  • Own at least 30 acres in California
  • Are utility customers of Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE) or San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E)

Additionally, your property may also be a good fit if it meets the following characteristics:

  • Located within a mile of a utility line
  • On flat or low-sloping ground
  • Not in a conservation easement
  • Not in wetlands
