What is Buffs Community Solar?
Buffs Community Solar is a University sponsored solar bulk buy program that spreads the mission of solar throughout specific University affiliated groups. In addition, it helps accomplishes the following goals:
1. Allows specific University affiliated groups to obtain bulk buy discounts on solar for their homes and businesses. Pricing and discounts are pre negotiated to ensure everyone who participates in the program receives the same discounts.
2. By participating in the program, residents and businesses donate their renewable energy credits (REC’s) to the University to help meet renewable and sustainability goals.
Buffs Community Solar program also helps educate faculty, alumni, students, and others about the benefits of solar, how to successfully implement a solar project, and how solar benefits the local community.
Community solar programs have been responsible for the installation of hundreds of KW of solar, millions of dollars of savings for program participants, and millions of kWh of renewable power throughout the U.S.
