Massachusetts-based EnergySage announced the soft launch of its community solar marketplace earlier this month.
State regulators are expected to release final rules soon for a new shared solar program expected to launch in 2023.
The utility says it will seek a new location for its first community solar project, which already has commitments for more than 90% of its proposed capacity.
The state is moving forward with a full-fledged shared solar program even as a pilot program continues to limp along.
The installation is one of 18 projects in the works by Summit Ridge Energy in Ameren’s southern Illinois territory.
