SEIA/CCSA: Residential Consumer Guide to Community Solar
Post date: 04/07/2016 - 16:36
In an effort to increase consumer understanding when choosing community solar, the US-based Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Coalition for Community Solar Access (CCSA) are debuting the »Residential Consumer Guide to Community Solar«. The new guide provides consumers with an overview of community solar, expert tips on how to be an informed consumer, questions solar consumers should ask before entering into an agreement and links to other resources. Community solar projects are local solar facilities shared by individual community members. The »Residential Consumer Guide to Community Solar« complements the SEIA »Residential Consumer Guide to Solar Power«.
As of 2015, there were 94 MW of community solar in operation throughout the U.S. and another 173 MW expected to be installed this year alone, according to GTM Research.
