DENVER - May 5, 2014 - PRLog -- SunShare is hosting a Lunch ‘n Learn event in Denver County this Wednesday to educate business owners, municipalities and residents about Xcel Energy’s Community Solar Garden program.

The events are targeted to businesses and governmental agencies and will touch on the history of the landmark legislation that created Solar Gardens, SunShare’s partnership with Xcel Energy, and how entities can participate in this exciting new program.

Community Solar was designed to broaden citizen and community access to locally generated solar energy. Residents living in apartments, small businesses and homeowners that couldn’t afford their own systems or large organizations without the proper roof space now have the option to choose solar.

“We are excited to partner with Xcel Energy on this new approach to solar energy.  Customer demand is high and capacity in our four Denver Metro Area gardens is going quickly.  We are holding these educational events to make sure the wider community is aware of the opportunity to join the program, said Jonathan W. Postal (J.W.) Sr. Vice President of SunShare.

“SunShare’s Community Solar gave us a chance to choose clean solar power.  We had no concerns over rooftops and no facilities hassles.” said Sandy Mutchler, Chief Operations Officer of Adams 14 School District, the first school district to sign up with SunShare’s Community Solar Program.

SunShare’s Lunch ‘n Learn event will be on Wednesday,  May 7th, from 11:45am-1pm at Maggiano’s Little Italy, 500 16th Street Mall #150.  Community members interested in attending should RSVP to
