GLRPPR Sector Resource: A Guide to Community Solar: Utility, Private, and Non-profit Project Development

Title:
A Guide to Community Solar: Utility, Private, and Non-profit Project Development

Abstract:
This guide is designed as a resource for those who want to develop community solar projects, from community organizers or solar energy advocates to government officials or utility managers. By exploring the range of incentives and policies while providing examples of operational community solar projects, this guide will help communities to plan and implement successful local energy projects. In addition, by highlighting some of the policy best practices, this guide suggests changes in the regulatory landscape that could significantly boost community solar installations across the country.
