Community solar refers to a shared renewable energy model where several subscribers purchase the electrical output of a large solar farm. In return, subscribers typically receive a credit on their electricity bill from their electric provider. Missouri SB 824 of the 2022 legislative session would establish a community solar pilot program. The bill would require retail electric providers to implement a community solar project that will run for three years until the total solar electricity demand from subscribers equals 2% of the electric provider’s electricity sales of the previous year. Missouri HB 1536 of the 2022 legislative session states that electric corporations that plan to acquire or construct a new supply-side resource such as a new power plant must provide a plan to purchase energy credits from one or more community solar projects as long as the energy does not exceed 20% of the corporation’s renewable energy portfolio requirements.
