Community Solar

Renewable power sources such as solar photovoltaics are a key strategy to creating a sustainable energy future. But for most households and businesses, solar panels are out of reach due to high installation costs, technical hurdles, and lack of a suitable site. Community solar overcomes these obstacles by offering all energy consumers a way to tap into collective solar projects in their communities.

Elevate Energy is working to bring community solar into local neighborhoods to ensure the benefits of renewable energy are accessible to everyone. We’re designing tools and resources to help advance community solar projects and collaborating with a variety of partners to design innovative programs that serve all populations, even if they’re hard to reach.
