ForeFront Power gets SDG&E approval for community solar project as part of EcoShare

Forefront power

ForeFront Power says its community solar project in San Diego County is now the first to be approved for San Diego Gas and Electric’s (SDG&E) EcoShare program. The program allows SDG&E customers, including those who rent or cannot install on-site solar, the option of purchasing up to 100 percent renewable energy from an off-site location.

Approximately half of U.S. households and businesses are unable to install rooftop solar due to space, lack of sun exposure or ownership limitations, according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). SDG&E’s EcoShare program gives residential and business customers – including those who rent – an easy way to participate in solar without installing or maintaining solar panels.

“We are thrilled to be pioneers of this important community solar program for SDG&E customers,” said Vice President of Sales, Rachel McLaughlin. “For customers who are unable to benefit from on-site solar energy, we now have a solution to extend the benefits of renewable energy to them.”

ForeFront Power is developing the inaugural EcoShare program community solar project in Campo, California. Participating customers will sign a contract directly with ForeFront Power to subscribe to a portion of the energy produced from the 2.4-megawatt solar project. In turn, customers will receive a program credit from SDG&E on their monthly energy statement based on the kilowatt-hour output of their subscription with the developer.

Both residential and business customers may now express their interest in the project to ForeFront Power in order to start their subscription upon project completion in spring 2020.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
