Community Solar & Energy Storage Systems
Presenter: Stephen Shumaker
Interested in solar but can’t afford it, or don’t have roof space for it? A community solar program could be the answer, as it allows a group of people to pitch in on a solar power system and share the benefits. We’ll discuss the various structures that allow anyone to invest in solar today, or in the near future. We’ll also look at what could work specifically for the Astoria region. Solar works best when paired with energy storage systems, so we’ll also look at virtual power plants as a solution to providing a steady flow of power even when the sun isn’t shining.
