T-Mobile has joined clean energy firm Nexamp’s community solar program, which increases the number of clean energy sources available on the grid. With this move, T-Mobile has taken a step towards achieving its science-based carbon emissions targets.

Through this program, T-Mobile hopes to make green energy more accessible to the communities it serves. With subscriptions to 10 Nexamp solar farms, with a total capacity of more than 50 MW across Maine, Massachusetts and New York, the firm will be able to secure significant savings through discounted credits on electric bills.

Local electric customers will be able to subscribe to these projects and get discounts on their bills. The clean energy generated at Nexamp’s community solar farms is fed to the local utility grids. Subscribers can obtain credits on their utility bills.

“We at T-Mobile are all-in on sustainability and reducing our environmental footprint, so it’s important for us to align with partners that share our passion and commitment for bringing more green energy to the grid,” said Chad Wilkerson, Director of Sustainability and Infrastructure Sourcing at T-Mobile. “We chose Nexamp to help us in that effort because we understand the importance of community solar in our pursuit of a decarbonized future.”

Nexamp has completed or is underway on community solar projects in Maine, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts and Maryland. 

Many residential and business customers cannot support or afford rooftop solar across their sites. Community solar is located to create a pathway for participation in solar capacity added to the grid or directly to the customers.
