A West Monroe Partners white paper
This white paper defines community shared solar, characterizes its status in the U.S. including barriers to its implementation, outlines program design considerations, and offers predictions about what the future might hold for the shared solar market.
In late 2015, West Monroe Partners surveyed
the utility community, investor-owned utilities, public power entities, and electric cooperatives, to assess the current state of community shared solar interest and development. This paper describes the current shared solar landscape, informed by survey results, and other market insights and observances.
