“Community solar is on the move, and there is good reason for the momentum. By enabling customers to purchase, lease, or otherwise share the benefits of a portion of a local solar array, shared solar vastly expands the market for consumer-driven solar power.

A well-designed shared solar program breaks down those barriers and connects more Americans with the solar power they want.”
