Community power movement gains speed

Nationally, more people are investigating generating at least part of their electricity, and increasingly, joining with other like-minded people is the way to go.

Questions remain, such as how to distribute income that could come from a solar garden, and if such group ownership falls under the Securities Exchange Commission's realm of influence.
For more, see Becky English's piece at Smart Energy Living.

So, we want to know: what brings you to the community energy table? Answer in the comments section, please.

  1. What brings me to the community energy table? The concept of community scale solar gardens still adheres to a distributed energy model while allowing for greater participation in solar (and potentially wind) energy and lowering installation costs for individuals. I am also interested in making our project a revenue generator for our local school by 'renting' their rooftop space.
