Solar gardens (or “solar farms”) are distributed solar electric generation facilities from which consumers can purchase “shares” or panels accounting for a specified amount of solar generation. La Plata Electric Association, Inc.’s (LPEA) policy will enable its members who have poor or no solar rooftop space, an opportunity to participate in solar electric generation. The CSGs can potentially also allow renters, low-income members and others unable to install solar generation the ability to own interests in solar generation facilities.
LPEA will not develop or manage any of the CSGs. LPEA members will need to contract directly with a Subscriber Organization to participate.
