The city is installing solar panels at Jefferson Park with the hope of allowing up to 500 people to buy portions of the energy generated.
The Community Solar Project will allow customers to buy the portions through June 2020 for $600 per portion.
"Renewable energy sources like solar provide the opportunity to reduce our impact on the environment and protect the quality of life in our community," said Mayor Mike McGinn in a written statement. "This is an important step to make solar power more accessible and I commend City Light and Parks for making this sustainable energy option available to our residents."
