Congrats to the Edmonds Solar Cooperative! $40,000 was raised from local utility customers in $1,000 "slices" to install the 4.2 kW array. These solar shares have a ten-year pay back. A small step to install this first array, but one giant leap forward for community solar.
A similar cooperative is taking shape in Colorado! If cooperative model can scale, it will be a viable subscriber organization for solar gardens.
