The community renewable program is designed for consumers who want to develop community energy 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 projects, the community program helps consumers to plan and implement successful, affordable local energy projects. In addition, by highlighting some best policy practices, this program suggests changes in the regulatory landscape that could significantly boost community solar installations across the country.
If you do not have the financial resource to develop your own renewable energy and want to add environmental energy resources (solar or wind), you can participate in the community energy project while on your current plan.
The program focuses on projects designed to increase access to solar or other renewable energy and to reduce up-front costs for participants. Some secondary goals achieved by many Community Solar projects include:
- Improved economies of scale
- Optimal project siting
- Increased public understanding of solar energy
- Generation of local jobs
- Opportunity to test new models of marketing, project financing and service delivery
As your project developer, TEG will provide engineering designs, alternative financial analyses and energy monitory services to meet your goals. We encourage you to checkout this fantastic community energy option.
