La Plata Electric Association board members Wednesday approved a community solar garden program to increase development of renewable energy and allow small users to own part of a power-generating facility.
A community solar garden, or CSG, broadens participation in power generation by bringing into the game people who can't install a rooftop solar array for financial, space or home-orientation reasons.
A CSG also allows renters, low-income families, communal living groups, nonprofits and subdivisions to join in producing green energy.
