This free installment of our solar webinar series explored the potential of using software to convert portions of a coop’s photovoltaic (PV) assets into community solar products. With over 400 MW’s of solar investments expected to come online in the next year, this model could enable co-ops, and especially G&T’s, to purchase larger systems or maximize current assets (including solar procured via PPA’s) to achieve lower costs, while reducing risks and increasing values associated with a community solar offering.
Clean Energy Collective (CEC) joined us to provide insight on integrating community solar software. In addition, CEC and NRECA provided an update on community solar trends for 2017 and provided guidance on the latest tools and resources available to members such as NRECA’s newly-released guide, The Community Solar Playbook.
