Community Solar Development

Solar Farms with Alder Energy

What is Community Solar?

 Community solar arrays, also referred to as solar farms or solar gardens, provide access to a renewable energy program that benefits the community in multiple ways, including energy bill savings, job creation, and providing clean energy. Households and businesses can participate without installing solar panels on their rooftops or property. 

In addition to bringing greater equity to the solar market by expanding who directly benefits from solar energy, community solar helps regions become more energy independent. Instead of importing dirty fuel into your state, community solar helps create good jobs and clean energy locally. Properly managed community solar farms also protect natural resources, preserving clean air and water while benefiting local agriculture and wildlife.

Our Solar Farm Projects

Host a Solar Farm on Your Land or Roof

Alder Energy develops solar projects that provide accessible, clean, lower cost power solutions.

Our in-house industry experts work closely with our trusted partners to handle all aspects of solar farm installations including site analysis, financing, engineering and design, construction, monitoring and ongoing maintenance.

Alder Energy works directly with landowners to construct efficient clean energy solar farms that lower electricity costs, are environmentally friendly and contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions.

Alder Energy develops small to large-scale solar farms that provide clean power to local communities. Projects can be sized and built to meet demand given the constraints of their location. Large rooftops, parking lot structures, and farm land are all ideal for solar farmers – if the local zoning rules allow it.
