Community Solar Plants
In 2012, EcoMotion developed a partnership with the Clean Energy Collective in Colorado, the leading developer of “community solar plants.” This solar option allows for apartment dwellers, renters, and those without suitable “roof real estate” to “go solar” through a community system. EcoMotion worked with Clean Energy Collective founder and CEO, Paul Spencer, to introduce his brand of community solar to California utilities… from San Diego Gas and Electric, to Anaheim, Los Angeles, Pasadena, PG&E and SMUD. In the CEC model, consumers own assets and are compensated for their power generation for 50 years. Currently, EcoMotion is working for Metro in planning for community solar within communities impacted by rail development.
