Exploring Community Solar

Join us for an exploration of Community and Shared Solar! Attendees will gain a working definition of community/shared solar and examine the benefits of and barriers to going solar on a community scale.

Instructor Shannon Fulton will introduce participants to three basic community/shared solar models through an exploration of case studies in Illinois and markets similar to Missouri and Illinois. Policies and limitations shaping these models, and how they relate to the policy environment in Missouri and Illinois will be discussed as well as community drivers that contribute to creating a community/shared solar project.
