Community Solar#

Riverside Community Solar Array

The Community Solar program offers customers who want to produce renewable energy the option to own a portion of a solar photovoltaic array even if they don’t have the space or ability to install it. Community Solar participants receive credits on their energy bill for power the Riverside Community Solar Project generates. 

In 2015, Fort Collins Utilities and Clean Energy Collective developed the Riverside Community Solar Project, located on the northwest corner of Mulberry Street and Riverside Avenue.

The program is fully booked.
