The nonprofit organization Groundswell, which works on shared solar initiatives that promote economic empowerment, is now managing enrollment for a community solar project being built by NHT Ingenuity Power and Solar Renewable Energy at the Rhode Island Row apartments in Brentwood. Renters and homeowners throughout D.C. can apply at www.groundswell.org.
On Monday October 21, 2019, Groundswell hosted a blessing event to celebrate the completion of our 151 kilowatt community solar project located at the Monastery of Washington Province of Friars of the Discalced Carmelite. The project was born out of the Discalced Carmelite Friars desire to establish a greater connection with the community surrounding the monastery and make a positive contribution to it as part of their mission of service. The event also served as the official launch of Groundswell’s Share Power™ Community Solar Program.
