Solar Gardener Training

A community solar garden is a solar array on a very large rooftop or a few acres of ground. Those who rent or have shaded roofs can subscribe, owning panels in the array and receive credit on their electric bills.  Solar gardens laws are coming into effect in several U.S. states.

Community Supported Energy is a way to finance a solar array to supply the electric load of a public building, non-profit, or house of worship. The array is “crowdfunded” by local small investors.

A solar gardener is a combination community organizer / project manager who organizes the subscribers, finds the site, and guides the project through the development process. Solar gardeners aren’t hired – they emerge. A solar gardener works with local nonprofits, utilities, counties and municipalities, and traditional & social media.
