In an effort to reduce the energy burden on low-income Michiganders, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy collaborated with local community action agencies and utilities to develop three separate community solar pilot programs. Webinar panelists will discuss how the program partners developed each pilot, what they learned, and what advice they would give to those developing future programs.
Panelists will share information about a community solar project being developed by Holy Cross Energy (HCE), a rural electric cooperative in Colorado, that will benefit manufactured homes residents, including information on how the project has come to be, the programs and incentives utilized to support the project, how newly available Inflation Reduction Act incentives are being used to expand the project, how this project could be replicated and scaled up to benefit more mobile home residents throughout HCE’s service area, and more.
As part of their effort to ensure that community solar implementation can serve all communities, Energy Allies has been pioneering research into contracts to gain perspective on how the public views community solar product offerings.
California’s Solar for Multifamily Affording Housing Program shows how state energy agencies, community-based organizations, and nonprofits can collaborate to create impactful solar policy for underserved communities.
Panelists will share more information about how community solar can be used to bring the benefits of solar to manufactured homes; how to engage with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Community Solar Partnership; and successful examples of community solar projects that have benefitted manufactured homes and communities.
