Enrolling with ampion
How to become an Ampion member
Joining Ampion and receiving the benefits of solar energy is easy. Here’s how it works when you sign up online or over the phone with a member of our team.
What you Need to Get Started
Your zip code
We need this to match you with a locally-operated solar farm near you.
Your utility account info or a recent utility bill
We use your account info to confirm your eligibility, assign you a solar energy allocation that matches your usage and predict how much you’ll save.
A payment method
A payment method like a credit card, debit card or checking account is used to simplify the billing process through our auto-pay system, and to confirm your identity to get you signed up. (Though in some states, payments may be handled through your utility and your existing bill.)
What to expect
From sign-up to solar credits, here’s what to expect when enrolling in your Ampion membership.
Complete your Enrollment
Check your eligibility and sign up using your address, contact information and utility account data. If you’re eligible and capacity is available, you’ll be matched with a local solar farm.
Sign your contract to reserve capacity
Once we match you with a solar farm, you’ll be asked to sign a contract confirming your membership and the share of the renewable energy assigned to you. Don’t be intimidated! The contract is approved by your state’s regulators and contains protections for you, the solar farm and Ampion. (Don’t worry: you’re also able to cancel your membership for free at any time.)
Enter your payment info and await the benefits
Choose between a credit card or checking account as your auto-payment method and get ready to be more sustainable! It might take a few days to confirm the details, but we’ll keep you informed of your membership status via email (keep an eye on your spam folder just in case!).
What if I’m assigned “future capacity"?
Some members will be assigned to a solar farm and a share of its generated energy before the site is fully operational. We do this to reserve capacity and renewable energy credits on your behalf so you can start saving as soon as the solar farm starts sending electricity to the grid.
You won’t pay Ampion anything or see any savings on your utility bill until the site is up and running, but you can feel good knowing that you are contributing to new solar developments in your community!
