Navigating Policy Barriers: The Challenge of Expanding Community Solar Gardens

Why not harvest the sun in community solar gardens? Policy is why. Community solar initiatives have the potential to provide renewable energy to a wider range of individuals, including those with high energy burdens and low-income residents. However, in Wisconsin, utilities control the state’s power grid and argue that rooftop arrays and community solar gardens shift costs onto non-solar customers. Senator Duey Stroebel has proposed legislation to promote community solar, believing it could foster competition and reduce energy costs in the state. Despite the benefits of community solar gardens, policy barriers remain a significant hurdle in expanding their reach and impact.
