Summit County is leaping at the opportunity to buy into community solar gardens, even before the gardens themselves have been approved or marketing efforts initiated, developers said.
"It's a really great fit for a community like Summit County where people really understand environmental things and they also understand the financial viability," said Lauren Suhrbier, director of project development for Clean Energy Collective, the private company that aims to construct two solar gardens on Breckenridge-owned properties. "The reason it's so exciting is that Summit County has responded to the opportunity in ways that other places haven't in terms of the interest."
