Introduced by Rep. Carey Hamilton (D-Indianapolis), HB 1193 would support independent community solar in Indiana which would make solar accessible to homeowners, renters, small businesses, and more. The bill language would ensure a fair rate for solar credits which would be directly applied to subscriber utility bills to generate real bill savings for subscribers. Additionally, it would ensure meaningful participation from underserved communities.

The Hoosier Environmental Council is working in coalition with Hoosiers for Community Solar to bring community solar to Indiana. We need your help too. We’re asking HEC supporters to contact your state legislators about the importance of community solar for Indiana.

Update (as of 2/2):

Unfortunately, HB 1193 did not receive a hearing in the House Utilities Committee by the committee report deadline, meaning it does not advance.
