America's First Community Solar Project

    I've had a chance to visit the Ellensburg Community Renewable Park in Washington State.  The organizer, Gary Nystedt, has been incredibly friendly and agreed to advise us on our potential projects.  The project was conceived in 2003, first installed in 2006, and has continued to expand, completing its third phase in 2010 with a fourth phase underway.

    Ellensburg was a ground-breaker, the granddaddy of community solar projects!
