U.S. Community Solar and Storage Market

Evaluating the competitive energy marketplace for the community solar and storage market

Community solar and storage is a growing market segment that is gaining new attention and entrants. This non-traditional business model is seen as a valuable path toward lowering the barriers to entry for affordable solar energy, especially for the 50 million U.S. households with low-to-moderate incomes. While community solar has led the way in the market, and has considerable market potential, development of these types of projects has lagged due to investor uncertainty. 

In the first of a four-part series, DNV evaluates the competitive energy marketplace for the community solar and storage market segment, including the typical business model and an illumination of states where it is projected to grow in the coming decade.
