About Community Solar

solar panels


Community Solar is a different approach to developing solar energy. Instead of putting solar panels on your own home, Community Solar allows many people to come together to build one large solar array.

In the spring of 2017, Northern Lights built a 50-kilowatt (kW) community solar project on the northern end of our Sagle headquarters. The cost of building the project was funded by the member’s purchasing units and a grant from the Bonneville Environmental Foundation. The Northern Lights array is the first Community Solar project in the State of Idaho.
