Maybe you’d like to go solar, but your roof is too shaded...or you don’t own your roof because you live in an apartment... or you can’t afford the up-front costs on your own. What you need is a community solar garden!
Here’s the idea: small investors from a community come together to front the costs of a solar array, which can be hosted on the roof of a place of worship, community center, library or school. The investors get a credit on their electricity bill for the generated energy, and they sell power at a discount to the host.
Would you be willing to invest in a solar garden? Know of a possible host?
