This fall, we will proceed with the development and construction of Clean Energy Collective's (CEC) solar garden for Colorado Springs Utilities customers. We look forward to keeping you up to date on our progress as construction gets under way.
CEC's Colorado Springs Community Solar Farm will be located on an 8.7 acre parcel south of Colorado Springs on the east side of I-25, and south of the Stratmoor Valley Subdivision. The property will house a 500 kW community solar farm, in which over 150 Colorado Springs Utilities customers will own clean, locally-produced solar power. We have received land-use approval from the city and county, and construction of the solar arrays will begin in the next few weeks. Our target date of completion is December 15, 2012.
If you have already submitted a reservation with Clean Energy Collective, your solar panels in the upcoming array are still reserved. As we get closer to completing the array, we will contact you regarding the next steps for activating your system.
If you have not yet submitted a reservation, now is the time to get started. Don't miss out! To learn more and receive a proposal for a community solar system that works for your budget and objectives, click here.
What is Community Solar?
Community solar is making solar available to more people than ever before, allowing you to have clean solar energy without the hassle and expense of constructing an individual system on your rooftop. Clean Energy Collective constructs arrays of solar panels, called "solar farms", in centralized locations. CEC takes care of all the maintenance and repair. CEC community solar subscribers receive the same financial benefits as if the panels were installed on their roofs, and are credited directly on their monthly Colorado Springs Utilities bills for the power their panels produce.

Community Partner Program
CEC's Community Partner Program encourages community organizations and individuals to work with CEC to promote community solar. In exchange, CEC's Community Partners receive a percentage of each sale that they help generate. The Community Partner program is open to any organization or individual who works within the community, including environmental groups, churches, schools, non-profits, property managers, real estate agents and HOA's. Please email us if you would like more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Community solar couldn't exist without supportive community members. Thanks to your support and others like you, these community solar gardens will continue to grow and flourish, bringing more clean, renewable energy to Colorado Springs Utility customers.
