This Sunday, the Lubicon Lake Band of Little Buffalo will hold a community feast and ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the installation of an 80 panel, 20.8 kilowatt solar system that will power the adjacent community health centre with the excess fed into the grid. The community owned and operated solar system was built with support from Bullfrog Power, Canadian Energy, Honour the Earth Foundation, W Dusk Energy Group, Greenpeace Canada, and actress/environmentalist Jane Fonda.
As a tool for investors, financiers, project developers and others, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and CohnReznick, a leading national accounting, tax and advisory firm, today released a guide to the valuation of solar projects for financial reporting purposes.
CPS Energy in San Antonio, Texas, said it has chosen Clean Energy Collective as its vendor for the utility’s first community solar project, according to a July 9 news release. Through the community solar program, residential and commercial electricity customers will be able to purchase panels from the 1.2-megawatt shared facility and receive credits on their electricity bills from CPS Energy.
