“Community Solar” has a number of other names, including: community-based renewable energy, solar gardens, solar farms, shared solar, or community-shared solar. A program or project typically involves the community in discussing and implementing a plan. It may initially or sometime in the future provide virtual net metering, as Lincoln Electric System is doing in the second phase of its SunShares Program, and as Nebraska Public Power District is initiating through its pilot SunWise projects in Venango and Scottsbluff.

At least nine Nebraska towns and cities, identified below, have created community-involved solar projects or are discussing developing one. The following resources are offered to communities that may be considering a project.  If you know of other Nebraska towns and cities that have completed a community solar project, or you are familiar with other resources and news stories you would like to share, please send this information to: nebraskansforsolar@gmail.com
