Colorado-based energy company SunShare has sold out its 2 MW community solar garden project.
Customers include University of Colorado Colorado Springs, the Pikes Peak Library District, Security Water District and the City of Manitou Springs. SunShare says governmental interest in the project was particularly high.
Colorado Springs Utilities awarded the community solar contract to SunShare under a public bidding process in November 2013. Construction on the project, which will incorporate over 100,000 solar panels, is scheduled to begin this fall.
