COVID-19 is hitting the pocketbooks of DC residents hard and some of us are being forced to choose between food, utilities and rent. We want to help make that choice easier. We’re reaching out to inform DC renters and homeowners that if you receive benefits through SNAP, TANF, Section 8 or SSI you are automatically qualified to cut your utility bill in half through a Groundswell Community Solar Project. This means you could begin reducing your utility bill now, so you can use your money for immediate needs during this crisis. If you don’t use SNAP, TANF or SSI, that's ok - you can still qualify for this program based on household income and other qualifications.
 
Groundswell builds community power! We develop community solar projects and subscriber management programs that connect solar power with economic empowerment for local communities. More than ever, we believe that energy - specifically clean energy - is a necessity, not a luxury. We’re all in this together; and we can’t afford to leave our neighbors in need behind. So if you think you qualify, or have a family member or friend who you know needs a hand right now, please fill out the form below or email us at Customerservice@groundswell.org
