Community solar, often referred to as shared solar or solar gardens, is a collaborative solar energy project where multiple participants within a community collectively share the benefits of a single solar array.
This model allows residents, businesses and organizations that are unable to install solar panels on their properties to access the benefits of solar energy. By subscribing to a shared solar project, community members can enjoy cost savings on their energy bills, contribute to a cleaner environment and support the development of local renewable energy sources.
Community solar initiatives not only foster a sense of environmental responsibility but also promote a stronger sense of community engagement and participation in sustainable energy practices, ultimately leading to a more resilient and eco-friendly community.
