CLIMATE ACTION FORUM 2: Charging Ahead With the Nelson Community Solar Garden

November 22, 2017
3:55 pm  -  4:05 pm

The Nelson Community Solar Garden was placed in service in the spring of 2017. It is a 60 kW project led by the utility with buy-in from the utility customers. It is unique in Canada in that it uses a virtual net metering system, so that energy produced at the central location is credited to the customers’ energy bill, as if the solar PV had been on their homes.

The community Solar Garden makes solar available to many who could not normally install solar on their roof tops (apartments, condos, and homes with poor sun visibility). The Nelson Community Solar Garden is a model that other places may want to replicate
