500-kW Community Solar Garden Under Construction in Boulder, CO

February 2013 - On February 22, 2013, Clean Energy Collective broke ground on a 500-kilowatt (kW) community-owned solar array in Xcel Energy's Colorado service area. The array will service roughly 100 residential, commercial, and nonprofit customers. The project is a result of Xcel Energy's Solar Rewards Community program, which is a solar garden initiative bringing renewable energy to customers who are unable to put solar panels on their properties. The Solar Rewards Community program allows any Xcel customer to purchase solar panels in the array; the customer then receives credits directly on their electricity bill for the power produced. The program was made possible by the passing of Rep. Claire Levy's House Bill 10-1342.
