Solar panel envy?
Want to gain access to solar energy but don't have a rooftop suitable for holding solar panels?
The emerging community solar movement may be your ticket.
Under community solar, various communities or entities can band together to subscribe for a chunk of the power produced by solar arrays elsewhere. The program expands solar energy access to renters or those with homes that might be too shaded by trees to provide ample sunshine streaming to panels.
Solar Oregon is hosting a talk entitled Community Solar — A New Tool in the Clean Energy Revolution, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, at the Lucky Lab on 1700 N. Killingsworth St. in Portland.
Bridget Callahan of Sustainable Northwest and Dan Orzech of Oregon Clean Power Coop will discuss the upcoming community solar program and its potential to expand solar power in Oregon.
