Xcel Energy and solar developers have announced an agreement that will continue to give Colorado customers the ability to access solar generation through the company's successful Solar*Rewards Community program.
Xcel Energy, Clean Energy Collective, Community Energy Inc. and SunShare filed a settlement with the Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to add up to 60 MW of community solar in Colorado through a request for proposals in 2016. A community solar garden is a community-shared solar array, with grid-connected subscribers, which allows consumers to access the benefits of solar energy without needing to install rooftop systems.
In the agreement, Xcel Energy also committed to participate in ownership of up to 4 megawatts of community solar, which will exclusively serve low-income customers and non- profit 501(c)(3) organizations.Read more: http://m.tdworld.com/renewables/xcel-energy-add-60-mw-solar-garden-capacity-2016
