Engineering a win-win

In an ideal world, our towns, villages, counties and school districts would be able to put together the funds required to build and own their solar energy systems, through outright grants or by bonding the projects. But grants for this purpose have dried up, and the costs are daunting for most of our communities. Power purchase agreements put rapid transition to renewable energy within reach for our towns and villages, schools and non-profit institutions.
