Leading community-owned solar power plant
Most utility scale solar power stations are owned by independent power producers, institutional investors or utility companies as described here. A small but growing trend is the establishment of community energy projects and a few of these have now entered the utility scale solar sector.
Community energy projects are typically owned by collaborative ventures established by a broad group of individuals and families, often located in the neighbourhood of the project.
These individuals together raise the investment needed to provide the equity for the project. They are also often able to source their electricity from the plant which they own.
The community owned projects on the Wiki-Solar Database are shown on this map.
