    No Roof? No Problem. Community-Shared Solar Offers Solar Energy for All

    Tina Trinh, October 25, 2017 (Voice of America)

    “…[Not everyone can take] advantage of solar power’s promise of reduced energy bills and the rise of jobs in a new green workforce…[As much as 80% of electricity users may be] locked out of the solar market because they cannot install solar on their own rooftop…In New York City, where the majority of residents are apartment renters, the benefits of solar power are elusive…[But community-shared solar programs are] lowering barriers for access…[C]ity officials recently put out a call to solar project developers for the installation of solar panels atop 14 of New York City’s public housing properties. If all goes according to plan, up to 6,600 low and moderate-income households will be powered by 25 megawatts of solar power by 2025…The New York City Housing Authority will lease rooftop sites to solar project developers for a maximum of 25 years. Developers will set up and maintain the solar systems and sell power to residents…Apart from using city rooftops, companies like Solstice work with off-site solar farms to provide shares of the farm to urban communities…Solar shares are sized according to how much electricity customers use…” click here for more
