This bill will allow community solar garden developers who are working in Xcel or Black Hills territories to build bigger projects (subject to their RFP award), work with customers across the entire service territory and ensure that community solar subscriptions are treated the same as rooftop solar for tax purposes.

The Public Utility Service Commission will be up for reauthorization. COSSA is currently gathering ideas from members about how to ensure the PUC is best equipped to tackle the challenges of the transition to a clean energy future. This bill is yet to be introduced.
