Public Entities and Solar Energy
Public entities are challenged by not being able to take advantage of federal and state tax incentives. Because of this situation, many public entities engage in solar leasing and additional third-party options. Additionally, public entities are encouraged to partner with other public entities and businesses in a solar project. Larger projects cost less per watt than smaller installations. This can be a more economical way to add renewables to the generation mix. Use the Energy Saver Tool to find additional funding resources and utility programs.
