Solar at Your Community Garden

The Solar Gardens Institute is looking for sites to host solar panels for "Community Solar Gardens". Recent legislation allows you to subscribe to electricity from a community-owned array and receive a credit directly on your electric bill. This is great for people who have shaded property or who live in apartments - just the people who use community food gardens.

The Public Utilities Commission is nearing final rules for the program, wich should begin implementation in early 2012.

Imagine a row of panels sprouting along the north side of each community garden, with the members receiving both salad greens and green electricity. We can do this!
