CEC President Paul Spencer will participate on a panel on community solar.
Distributed energy in the form of community-owned solar gardens is one of the fasted growing segments of retail solar in the US. Colorado is leading the charge with several megawatts in operation or under construction. The model is being covered in depth at this year's Solar Power International in a program titled "Community-Shared Solar: Tapping New Markets through Innovative Business Models". Community solar innovator Paul Spencer, founder and CEO of Clean Energy Collective, is a featured speaker for this program. CEC is the industry leader in the development of community-owned solar gardens, currently working with seven utilities on fourteen projects in three states, representing more than 5,300 kW of community-sited solar PV.
