This is an interview with Mr. Paul Spencer, President and Founder of Clean Energy Collective (Community-owned clean energy:, on September 13, 2012, at Solar Power International (SPI) 2012, Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, FL. Interview was conducted, edited, and uploaded by Susan Sun Nunamaker and filmed by Michael Nunamaker.

Clean Energy Collective (CEC) is a Carbondale, CO based new company in power generation that is building, operating, and maintaining community-based clean energy facilities. It is pioneering the model of delivering clean power-generation through medium-scale facilities that are collectively owned by participating utility customers. Its proprietary RemoteMeter system automatically calculates monthly credits for members and integrates with utilities’ existing billing system. This is potentially the answer/solution for all of those residents in high rises, apartments, condos, renters, or those who have issues with home orientation or shading. By minimizing the financial barrier to entry through allowing the purchase of a single operating panel ($725), CEC has made ownership available to every one with an electric bill. In essence, CEC’s goals are: to accelerate the adoption of long-term clean energy solutions by making them easier, cheaper, safer, and longer lasting;to provide utilities with lower risk, well located and more beneficial clean energy generation

Currently Clean Energy Collective is in three states (Colorado, New Mexico, and Minnesota) and will continue to grow because a significant portion of the population would benefit from this brilliantly simple concept of fractional ownership, such that by putting a large solar array on vacant land then run the power directly to the local utility company and allow area home owners to participate in the partnership. Homeowners then see a credit back on their normal utility bill, relative to the amount of solar power they purchased. All of this, including not ever having to worry about maintenance of any of the solar panels. More details in CEC at
