GoLocalSolar News - Community Solar - when people have a difficult time installing solar on their rooftop because of shading or northern facing roofs, or they live in apartment or condo units it is almost impossible to install solar on their building. Community solar takes an offsite solar garden or farm usually near by and invites these people to participate collectively in the installation costs and receive back the solar production with virtual net metering from the local utility or through a collective LLC distribution. Look for this in your state and ask your legislation to initiate a program for you using local resources, installers, and if possible materials to protect the local economy and generate new local green jobs.
