Where and how we source our energy has a huge impact on our lives,
. . . from the food we eat,
. . . to the air we breathe,
. . . which is why a shift to renewable energy is crucial.
From rooftop solar arrays,
. . . to large utility-scale solar farms,
. . . solar energy is helping us move toward a cleaner energy future.

Community-scale solar,
. . . has many of the benefits of distributed behind-the-meter solar,
. . . while also capturing the economies of scale of larger solar farms.
Many smaller municipal utilities and cooperatives,
. . . especially ones that serve rural areas,
. . . are not large enough to contract for utility-scale solar,
. . . or do not have the capacity to integrate utility-scale generation into their distribution substations.
But they may have adequate demand to incorporate community-scale solar, and
. . . many of their substations are large enough to accommodate these smaller installations.
