The community solar concept is gaining ground across the US, and it could work anywhere in the world where virtual net metering can be implemented. Also called a community solar garden, it gives people a way to use solar energy without having solar panels installed on their roofs. The solar gardens are really solar farms, built on a piece of land either in or near the community that it serves.
The September 2014 report, “Expanding Solar Access Through Utility-led Community Solar” from Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) found that community solar participation jumped 64% in 18 months in the US.
