Seven Days of Solar 10-2-11: Online peer-to-peer funding for solar projects in California; More than 2.9 MW of s...

Oakland, California is set to begin it’s first community solar project. Launched as a pilot program, Oakland Solar Mosaic is based on a crowd funding model formed as a collaboration between solar finance company Solar Mosaic and Oakland’s Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. The solar installation will serve as one of the nation’s first projects to connect those who want to invest in solar with community centers who can benefit from solar. Oakland Solar Mosaic will create up to 140 kW of solar (enough to power 28 homes) on the roofs of organizations across Oakland that serve low-income communities. In addition to benefiting community centers in Oakland, the program is expected to create over 1,000 work hours for recent graduates of green jobs training programs.
