Colorado PUC Begins Solar Gardens Rule Making
As required in HB 1342, the Colorado PUC has begun a rule making process for Community Solar Gardens. Anyone in the public may comment on this rule making, and the Solar Gardens Institute will be gathering suggestions and concerns to file collective comments.
The PUC will hold a hearing for Solar Gardens on January 13, 2011 at 9 AM.
The Colorado Division of Securities has issued an interpretation on solar gardens as well. The opinion states: "...the Staff is unable to conclude a "security" does not exist with respect to the final participation of subscribers in CSG." The variety of different possible legal structures was one of the reasons they cited for this decision.
