What is Community Scale Solar?
We define community scale solar as development projects that will produce 1,000 kilowatts – 7,000 kilowatts (or 1-7 megawatts). These projects usually require as little as a few acres of land for development. PV Intel’s Solar Development Training Course is led by a team of experts and experienced developers, and covers all the phases of developing these community scale solar projects
