    ScottMadden Provides Answers to the Community Solar Questions You Were Afraid to Ask


    December 27, 2015 - December 21, 2015 | Atlanta, GA

     

      ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, has released a report to provide answers to the community solar questions you were afraid to ask. The first portion of the article provides a definition of community solar, an overview of the community solar market and advantages of community solar, and an outline of community solar models. The second portion discusses community solar implementation issues related to program design, customer motivations, and financial implications.

      Community solar is a rapidly emerging model that combines the value of direct customer “ownership” of rooftop solar with the flexibility and economic advantages of utility-scale solar. Development of a community solar program by an electric utility is not simple and requires a coordinated approach to successfully enter the market.

      “Community solar is a growth market attracting significant national interest,” said Paul Quinlan, clean tech specialist at ScottMadden. “However, designing an effective and successful community solar program requires a strong understanding of market characteristics and implementation issues.”

      This article is featured in the December 2015 issue of the Public Utilities Fortnightly Magazine. Click here for a complimentary copy.
