Techstination feature for Thursday, June 1, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Solstice is the name of a company that is in what is known as the community solar business.    They are helping consumers, businesses and localities to benefit from solar energy by bringing them together with  solar farms.   Solstice co-founder and CEO Steph Speirs..

“About four out of five Americans can’t do rooftop solar because they’re a condo owner or a renter and they don’t own the rooftop.  So they can’t put a system on it.  Or their rooftop is disqualified for structural reasons.”

And then there can be issues with the up front costs.  Community solar typically requires no investment and provides those who subscribe with  a substantial discount on their electricity bills.   Availability varies from state to state…but it is growing.   Find more on this company at
