Don’t have a place to in­stall your own sol­ar pan­el? The D.C. City Coun­cil thinks you should still reap the be­ne­fits of sol­ar en­ergy, passing a bill earli­er this week that al­lows sol­ar in­vest­ment to be tied to elec­tri­city bills, Wash­ing­ton City Pa­per re­ports.

Es­sen­tially, res­id­ents can buy in­to a per­cent­age of any Dis­trict sol­ar pro­ject. That same per­cent­age of all the pro­ject’s elec­tri­city pro­duc­tion would then be de­duc­ted from their util­ity bill.

One of the bill’s ad­voc­ates praised elec­tri­city pro­vider Pepco for work­ing in part­ner­ship with the coun­cil on the bill.
