The Solar Gardens Institute
The Solar Gardens Institute is helping organize communities to pool their resources and go solar. Libraries and schools, places of worship and non-profit groups can benefit by hosting a distributed power plant where anyone can own solar panels. We will be developing workshops and certification programs that assist our mission of solar panel ownership for everyone. The Solar Gardens Institute advocates for community based energy development through legislation in several states, and the federal SUN (Solar Uniting Neighborhoods) act introduced by Colorado Senator Mark Udall. We also support efforts at the local level to develop model solar regulations. Community Solar GardensTM are sprouting up everywhere, beginning to transform America through solar power and people power.
