Community-scale solar: A $30 billion opportunity

When people think of solar power, the first image that tends to come to mind is either a massive solar farm located in a remote desert location, or solar panels installed on top of the roofs of homes and businesses.

While both of these approaches provide customers with clean, renewable energy, Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) is driving the development of a third technological approach – an approach that supplies the benefits of both utility-scale and individual rooftop solar arrays, while also expanding access to clean energy for underserved communities and low and moderate income households.
