In late 2016 Microgrid Energy decided to apply its extensive engineering, construction, and development experience to the exciting community solar sector. Community solar, which allows businesses and consumers to purchase renewable energy from local solar farms (also known as solar gardens), is growing in popularity as more states pass legislation to make it a reality. Community solar has seen success in states such as Colorado, Minnesota, New York, and Massachusetts, and a number of other states will be implementing programs in the coming year. These programs provide an attractive option for those who might not otherwise be able to install solar on their own roof or property, such as renters or people with a lot of shade on their property.
