Annual kWh estimate is based on your average monthly bill amount, using 2022 U.S. data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA). All Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies are based on the electricity use avoided through supporting renewable energy and the EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator. Savings based on a 10% discount. Exact discounts and savings may vary.

Evolving Net Zero Landscape

Scope 1, 2 & 3 Emissions are inclusive of direct, operations related and supply chain emissions. With the advent of “work from home” becoming more prevalent and companies reducing their office footprint, many experts are pushing for Scope four to include the emissions generated from work from home for non front line employees.


Direct emissions

Company-owned buildings and equipment



Indirect emissions

Company-used electricity and energy generation



Other indirect emissions

Supply chain, employee travel and embodied carbon



Employee emissions

Employee commuting, energy footprint and waste

Companies worldwide are committing to Net Zero Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions based on the pre-pandemic established Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions classification.

Community Engagement

In addition to reducing carbon emissions, we believe renewable energy can also help to build stronger local communities.

At PureSky, we aim to deliver ongoing social benefits throughout the lifetime of each project. Our dedicated development teams work in collaboration with local stakeholders to get a better understanding of unique needs, environmental concerns, and a history of the communities in which we operate. With our long-term commitment to our renewable energy projects, we are able to be a trusted partner and community member.

In 2023 Amp US was rebranded to PureSky Energy

With climate change posing such an urgent risk, we believe education is the key to solving tomorrow’s environmental challenges.

In the regions where we operate our community and utility-scale solar farms, we support school renewable energy education programs with field trips, workshops, and student learning activities. These initiatives help students to understand the unique benefits of renewables and promote sustainability in their local areas. In New York alone we have committed more than $200,000 in the form of donations or scholarships to primary and secondary institutions.

We strive to create new pathways for the next generation to forge careers in clean energy.

To achieve this, we’ve funded a number of scholarships in green STEM fields to help high school students advance their education and become tomorrow’s environmental leaders.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why join a community solar farm?

When subscribing to community solar, you are guaranteed to save money with no up-front costs or hidden fees all while supporting renewable energy.  

How does community solar support my community?

We invest in the local community by building on local farms, creating jobs, tax revenue, providing renewable energy education, using sheep grazing, support local pollinators and animal habitats ensuring the local benefits stretch far beyond the savings. 

What's the catch? Sounds to good to be true.

Solar that doesn't require a roof, no catch, not too good to be true.

How do I enroll?

Once we confirm your eligibility, we will analyze your home's usage, determine your subscription size and sign you up.  Easy as that!

What if I move or need to cancel?

Often times, your solar subscription can move with you, we want you to continue to save money in your new home!

If for any reason we can't move your subscription to your new home, we ask that you provide us with proper notice to terminate, dependent on your contract requirement. 

Does this mean I no longer receive power from my local utility or do I need to switch my energy supplier?

No, you will not be switching utility companies. By signing up for community solar, you will receive the community solar benefits directly on your current utility bill. 

How is my subscription size determined and what if my usage changes?

Our community solar team analyzes your annual electricity usage and use this to determine the appropriate subscription rate. We understand your electricity needs may change and can adjust your subscription to maximize your savings at any time. 

How does seasonality affect solar and the credits I receive?

The sun plays a big role in your savings!  

In the summer, when the solar farm produces the most you will receive more solar savings.  As we move into the winter months the solar farm will start to produce less. Meaning any extra community solar credits received in the summer, will be saved to use in the winter.  Think of this as pre-paying for your electricity (at a discounted rate) in the summer to use in the winter.

How much does it cost to sign up?

No Cost to sign up, this is purely a savings program!

How does billing work?

You will continue to receive a bill from your current utility provider. The community solar credits generated by the solar farm will be applied directly to your utility bill.  Depending on where you live and who your utility provider is, you will either receive a separate bill for the solar credits received at a discounted rate or have solar savings applied directly to your utility bill.

What will my bill look like?

In some states, you won't receive an additional bill, all savings received from the community solar farm appear directly on your utility bill and the utility pays us directly. In other states, you could have dual billing, where you would pay us for the savings received on your utility bill at a discounted rate. 

Here is an example of your old utility bill vs. what your new utility bill will look like with community solar savings
