C’mon Community Solar

This approach to community-funded solar installations  is an encouraging social solution to distributed power generation. The initial seed funding that is effectively a donation on the part of the original investors may be a deterrent in Australia however there are other sources of seed funding for those who are determined to get something started.

There is no doubt a business case that lies somewhere in between, with some government-supplied seed funding, bolstered by some return on investment for the original investors.

I’m now curious to know what similar schemes might be up and running in Australia, and how they work, and will re-post if I find anything.
