What is community solar?
Jeff Mayer, August 7, 2018
Community solar gives everyone the opportunity to share in the benefits of clean solar energy without rooftop installations.
Community solar is ideal for homeowners with shaded rooftops, businesses that don’t own their own buildings, churches and other houses of worship that cannot take advantage of tax incentives because they do not pay taxes.
Here’s how it works:
Solar arrays are built on rural land; typically non-producing farm land and other “brown fields” like quarries. The electricity produced on the solar farm goes into the local utility grid.
