In support of the Community Solar market, Mortenson recently became a member of the Coalition for Community Solar Access (CCSA), a trade organization that works to expand access to clean, local affordable energy nationwide. CCSA’s mission is to empower energy consumers large and small by increasing their access to affordable, reliable clean energy and support opening new markets for community solar.
Community solar refers to local solar facilities shared by individual community members, who receive credits on their electricity bills for their portion of the power produced. Community solar projects provide homeowners, renters and businesses access to the benefits of solar energy generation without the need for an array installed on their home or business. These programs can also expand access to solar energy for low-income households.
