Community Green Energy (CGE) is a nationwide developer, financier, and operator of community solar projects. Community solar projects provide opportunities for all community members to benefit from the electricity cost savings afforded by using solar energy and we work to make these programs as accessible as possible. Our goal is to develop community solar projects that return sustainable environmental and economic benefits to the local community.
We develop projects that range from 100 kW (about an acre in size) to 2 MW projects (about 10 acres in size) and work with private and public sector clients alike. In putting projects together, we conduct solar feasibility assessments and site visits using experienced professionals at no costs to our clients and follow this up with design, construction, and community outreach efforts to get a project built and supporting the community. Our staff prides itself on working with our clients every step of the way to ensure that each community solar project can be all that it can be to the local community.
Everyone from renters and homeowners to small businesses and large corporations to governments, schools, and non-profits can own solar in our community solar gardens and save money! And all without any of the hassles of rooftop solar.
