Proudly serving Colorado since 2011

Since 2011, SunShare has proudly served Colorado by building large community solar projects – with thousands of panels – in communities across the Front Range. Working with the largest utilities in the state – Xcel Energy and Colorado Springs Utilities – we are able to serve thousands of residents and organizations. Now, anyone can enjoy the benefits of solar electricity without putting panels on their roof, simply by subscribing to a SunShare community solar garden!

Colorado was the first state to enact community solar legislation. In 2010, HB 10-1342, The Community Solar Gardens Act, was passed allowing independent companies to provide distributed solar energy through solar gardens to residents and organizations. This law paved the way for community solar, and it has spread across the country. As soon as the Community Solar Garden Act was enacted, our founder David Amster-Olszewski worked tirelessly to develop the first ever competitive community solar program in the nation, with the second largest utility in the state, Colorado Springs Utility.
