WSB partnered with SolarStone Partners, a solar development company, to create 40 community solar gardens. The range of services provided helped SolarStone meet evolving energy needs and customer preferences that will benefit cities and stakeholders.
The projects required several steps, including wetland delineation, geotechnical analysis, municipal ordinances and civil design. Our team supported SolarStone from early due diligence to final design and construction.
What are community solar gardens?
Community solar gardens (CSGs) provide distributed energy systems to local communities. CSGs are options for energy customers in some states who want to use solar energy but may be unable to generate their own solar power because they live in an apartment, have a shaded roof or do not have space for solar panels. Residents, businesses and organizations can subscribe directly to a CSG for a small fee. Once subscribed to an active CSG, the subscriber receives credits on their energy bill equivalent to the solar energy that contributes to the energy grid.
