Webinar on cities funding solar gardens, selling energy, and working with utilities

Submitted by robertgnewell on 6 January 2014

On Tuesday, January 14, the Sustainable Cities Exchange will hold a webinar on ‘solar gardens’. Solar gardens are community-based solar projects that allow individuals and businesses that do not have capacity for solar panels to receive benefit from solar energy systems. Participants in these projects can purchase shares of solar gardens and receive appropriate electric utility credits for their energy usage. In some cases, solar gardens can be designed as methods of generating income for communities.

The Sustainable Cities Exchange webinar on solar gardens will feature a presentation by Eugene Wilson, land-use and environmental attorney, and will explore the benefits and opportunities of solar gardens. In addition, two California-based case studies, involving Sacramento and San Diego, will be discussed.
