What Are Community Solar Gardens?
Community Solar Gardens (CSG) are small-scale solar energy projects located on land that isn’t specific to a customer or subscriber. Much like traditional large-scale solar energy projects, these smaller offsite projects provide energy directly into the local electric grid. However, unlike large-scale solar projects, CSGs offer electric customers virtual subscriptions for the energy and/or the environmental attributes produced by the project. Customers may be residential or commercial electric customers. These state-run programs vary depending upon where you consume power, what the current rate structure is, how the program has been implemented and what local or state policies are in place.
