11/27/2017 The Community Solar Value Project (CSVP), an effort co-funded by the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative, has launched a new Solutions Toolbox for utilities and their partners, who are developing community solar and shared-solar programs. The Project team was led by the San Francisco-area energy consulting and analytics firm Extensible Energy, LLC (John Powers, Project Officer), with support from Cliburn and Associates. Additional support has been provided by Navigant Consulting, Olivine, Inc. and Millennium Energy. This team engaged the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) and more than a dozen other utilities to identify best practices and innovations that add value, while speeding the path to market for community solar programs.

2/2/2015 The Department of Energy has awarded a new project to a team led by Extensible Energy. We’ll be working in the rapidly-growing field of community solar, demonstrating how utilities can roll out higher-value projects by integrating additional measures (including demand response and storage) into their community solar programs.
