You can purchase locally produced solar energy from a community power project if you live nearby. When you subscribe, you share power with low-income neighbors and help them reduce their bills.
If you own a building, parking lot, or undeveloped land, you can host a Community Power Project that produces solar electricity for your neighborhood. Share power with community solar and expand your mission.
Groundswell recently collaborated with the Solutions Project, a nonprofit that funds renewable energy projects that build public will and interest, to install a solar Smartflower at the LaGrange Housing Authority (LHA). A first of its kind in area, the Smartflower will produce energy that will help reduce the monthly utility bill of LHA’s administrative office. Those savings will then be earmarked to fund future, youth afterschool programming and education.
