Can communities buy solar panels in bulk to make them more affordable?

    Buying anything in bulk automatically reduces the price of each individual (marginal) good that you are purchasing, and solar panels are no exception. In order to do this, a community, or city, would have to have a vote, and raise money somehow (usually via taxes) in order to buy mass quantities of solar panels (it would not be cheap thing to do, because in order for economies of scale to work the party would have to buy a lot of solar panels, which even at a discount would be expensive).
