Xcel Energy’s Colorado community solar gardens program get planted in 30 minutes

It's the first time that Xcel has offered incentives for community solar gardens. Community solar gardens are centrally located, but parts of which are purchased individually by residents or businesses that may not want to or be able to install solar at their location. Through the program Xcel is offering production incentives for the installations, which will benefit those who choose to buy in to a solar garden.
