    Solar + Community Choice

    In this week's episode we discuss how the impact of community choice solar for apartment buildings, HOA's, triple net buildings and even farms can benefit from large solar arrays that distribute the solar benefits to all of the stakeholders.  Moving these benefits away from the electricity companies can save money, increase solar deployment and reduce costs.
