Equitable solar projects that serve LMI households are critical for the just energy transition movement – to enhance access and improve transparency, including ownership and accountability, and move communities towards a more resilient future. However, not many households benefit from programs designed to reduce economic hardships – given that LMI communities experience disparate access to residential energy-savings programs – and there are few metrics to measure how well programs have delivered on their equity goals through community solar projects.
On August 28, 2023, experts from Groundswell and the Department of Energy's National Community Solar Partnership will share insights on how to use community solar as a tool to promote energy equity. Panelists will discuss frameworks for program design and implementation to develop effective solutions to mitigate equity challenges with community solar.
Join us at Energy Futures: 2023: Developing A Roadmap to Energy Equity with Community Solar for an in-depth discussion about program design and implementation frameworks, using community solar to develop custom roadmap models to address equity barriers within our communities.
