Green Power Partnership Webinar - An Introduction to Community Solar Programs

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership (GPP) will host a webinar examining the community solar model, also known as shared solar and community solar gardens. Community solar is an emerging model allowing customers to buy, lease, or subscribe to a portion of a shared solar system that is located away from their home or business.

The webinar will feature in-depth case studies of two community solar programs: Pacific Gas & Electric's new Solar Choice program and Boardman Hill Solar Farm, which is a community-owned solar array in Vermont. NREL will provide an overview of the growth and trends of community solar in the United States and address contractual/financial considerations for these types of projects. The webinar will review:
  • the emergence of community solar
  • the various models, including utility sponsored, special purpose entity, and nonprofit
  • solar renewable energy certificates (SRECs) and solar claims
  • Christopher Kent, Program Manager, U.S. EPA's Green Power Partnership
  • Eric O'Shaughnessy, Renewable Energy Analyst, National Renewable Energy Laboratory
  • Karly Silicani, Product Manager, Green Power Programs at Pacific Gas and Electric Company
  • Roland Marx, Boardman Hill Solar Farm
