In 2016, H.B. 8354 expanded Rhode Island's net metering rules to include community solar. Rhode Island's Renewable Energy Fund has provided community renewable incentives before community solar was officially enshrined.

A project needs at least 3 participating customers. One customer cannot receive more than 50% of the credits. At least 50% of the credits must go to customers whose annual load is less than 25 kW-AC.
