The largest community-owned solar project in the country was developed by Clean Energy Collective in collaboration with the San Miguel Power Association, an electric cooperative in northern Colorado. This 1.1 MW solar facility is spread across seven acres of land and has over 200 commuinity owners. Panels cost $740 dollars each and produce $45 worth of energy each year. The panels are maintained by CEC for 50 years so consumers benefit from production without having to worry about maintenance costs.
