Many people are interested in getting rooftop solar on their home or business, which is a good thing. However, not all buildings are good candidates for solar because they have poor siting to the sun, the roofs are not structurally sound enough, the buildings are rented and not owned by the occupant, or the occupant does not want to invest the upfront cost to install solar.
Community solar is “get it and forget it.” Lessees of solar panels in this program do not need to install or maintain the solar array. And these two parks are located in places that have unobstructed exposure to the sun, maximizing the amount of energy the arrays will produce.
