Mitsui & Co. arm ForeFront Power will develop the first community solar project for the PG&E’s Regional Renewable Choice program.

This program provides PG&E customers the option of purchasing up to 100 percent renewable energy from an off-site location.

As per the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), approximately half of the US households and businesses are unable to install rooftop solar due to space, lack of sun exposure or ownership limitations.

The company’s regional renewable choice program gives residential and business customers – including those who rent – an easy way to participate in solar without installing or maintaining solar panels.

ForeFront Power is developing the inaugural Regional Renewable Choice program community solar project in Fresno County.

Moreover, participating customers will sign a contract directly with ForeFront Power to subscribe to a portion of the energy produced from the 1.66-megawatt solar project.

In turn, customers will receive a program credit from PG&E on their monthly energy statement based on the kilowatt-hour output of their subscription with the developer.

Both residential and business customers may now express their interest in the project to ForeFront Power in order to start their subscription upon project completion in mid-2019.

Commenting on the development, Director of Sales, Rachel McLaughlin said, “ForeFront Power is excited to be the first renewable energy developer to take solar to the next level through community solar for PG&E customers,”

“We look forward to serving customers for whom on-site solar is not the right fit,” McLaughlin added.
