Solar Panels Seeing the Light in Community Solar Gardens | Ecopolitology

Great article from Ecopolitology on solar gardens (also called "community shared solar")!



Shading, ownership issues, limited space and many other factors means that most American households simply aren't suitable for solar panels. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimated that as much as three-quarters of residential buildings have physical restrictions to going solar.

However, in the last few years, new creative models such as "solar gardens" have started appearing all over the country, enabling those who otherwise were ineligible for solar, to participate in going green. What exactly is a community solar garden and how "big" will these become in the future?
