LES gets 78 proposals for community solar energy project | Lincoln, Nebraska Journal-Star
When Lincoln Electric System asked developers to submit proposals for a community solar project, administrators of the city-owned utility didn't know if they'd get any responses.
They got 78 proposals from 14 developers who want to build projects ranging in size from 100 to 2,000 kilowatts, in and around Lincoln.
The goal of the community solar project is to give LES customers who don't have suitable roofs for solar panels — or who have roofs pointing in a wrong direction or no individual roofs at all — a way to support a renewable energy project, possibly by purchasing shares.
