We’re working hard to bring a variety of solar options to the Greater Rochester Area, and you can read more about how we’re making Community Solar a reality in this recent Democrat and Chronicle article.
Community Solar is fairly new and has a great deal of potential, but installing these types of large scale solar projects is easier said than done. Yet again, we’ve never been the type to back down from a challenge!
For example, each town has unique rules and regulations pertaining to solar energy development in that area. We work closely with each town to learn, understand, and adhere to their specific laws regarding solar installation. It’s a constant learning process to ensure our solar projects are within code, which is why we take our time to carefully review our work each step of the way.
While it’s true that solar arrays don’t have any moving parts, the process of developing and installing them has several moving parts and involves many different people. Getting everyone on the same page can take time and a great deal of effort.
At GreenSpark Solar, being loyal to people and planet means working diligently to create fiercely local and cost-effective clean energy options that make solar accessible for our community. Sure, there are hurdles, but in time, we always overcome them. In fact, one of the greatest challenges we face in accomplishing our goal of providing accessible solar options is educating the entities involved. Regardless, we’re more than happy and committed to educating business partners, community members, municipalities, and more about the benefits of going solar.
Needless to say, we’re not slowing down and we’re not going anywhere. We’re in it for the long haul, no matter how long that is.
