What is community solar (also called solar gardens)? The idea is simple: Residents, government entities, schools, businesses and more can buy their solar power from a central array built and operated by a third party. It’s like having their own solar arrays but without the worry if their roof is solar-friendly or incurring the upfront costs of installation. 

GTM Research, Wood Mackenzie and Vote Solar released a report recently that indicated between 50% and 75% of U.S. electricity consumers can’t put solar arrays on their own roofs, a circumstance community solar can address immediately.

The report also noted that community solar installations could reach 84 GW of operating capacity, serve 8.8 million customers and account for as much as 2.6% of U.S. electricity consumption by 2030.

Standard Solar stands ready to help this revolution move forward.
