Dear Cohousing Community

River Song plans to start construction in May.  Now we are grappling with
some design questions.  I expect that we will decide to be an all-electric
community (or, at most, have a gas cooktop in the Community House in case
of power outage).

Our Design Team would love to have the benefit of others in considering the

1) Do we have an electric meter on each of our 28 units, or an electric
meter only on each of our seven buildings, or have only one electric meter
for the community and parcel out charges based on square footage of
individual units through the HOA?

2) Do we have solar.with battery backup, for a start, on the Community
House (possibly using financing where a third party pays for the
installation and is compensated over time through selling power to us and
the grid)?

Anybody have helpful experience/advice/suggestions?  Thanks so much
for your help.
