To the Editor:

Solstice announced that only 20 spots remain in a set of Barre solar gardens, giving Berkshire County households the chance to support local, clean energy and save on their electricity costs.

The projects, which together total 2 megawatts (MW) of production capacity, were built by Community Energy Inc., a renewable energy developer that has built nearly 700 MW of solar capacity in its nearly two decades of experience.

Community solar is a model for residential solar that allows households to enroll in a local shared solar array and see savings on their electricity costs. Because community solar requires no changes to a participant's property, the projects are open to households regardless of homeownership status or residents' ability to find financing for their array. According to industry analyst GTM Research, community solar was the fastest-growing sector of the solar industry in 2017, and is now available in states across the nation.
