Webinar & Events - Solar PV
Earlier this year, the Montgomery County Green Bank launched a new $600K LMI solar pilot program to test a different approach to solar access in LMI communities. The pilot includes a dual track (ownership and third party-owned) and an innovative third party owned pricing structure with solar company Sunnova.
Panelists from NREL and DOE will present the updated Solar Power in Your Community Guidebook and discuss how it can be a resource for developing a supportive local environment for innovative, equitable, and community-led solar.
This webinar explores one integrated technical and process concept designed to manage interconnection costs and streamline interconnection timelines to support near-term renewable energy deployment.
Local Solar for All’s Karl Rabago will discuss how advanced utility planning modeling shows that scaling local distributed energy resources can lead to a least-cost clean grid.
In 2015, Connecticut Green Bank, in partnership with the solar and energy efficiency company PosiGen, launched a solar leasing program that targets low- and moderate-income homeowners. Berkeley Lab’s study shows that the program has successfully reached underserved customers and has reasonable repayment rates given the credit characteristics of the participants.
There are now over 40 programs in the US that promote solar adoption by low- and moderate-income households. New research from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory takes a look at how they are being evaluated, highlighting trends among evaluation methods, metrics tracked, and best practices employed.
NREL’s Jeff Cook will provide an update on the development of the Solar Automated Permit Processing Platform Plus (SolarAPP+), an online solar permitting platform, and Solar Time-based Residential Analytics and Cycle time Estimator (Solar TRACE), a tool designed to help identify permitting, inspection and interconnection cycle times and related requirements nationwide.
Manufactured homes, formerly referred to as mobile homes, comprise over 6 percent of America’s housing stock and represent an even larger share of housing for low- and moderate-income (LMI) households. CESA’s new report explores the opportunities and challenges for bringing the benefits of solar to manufactured housing residents in fourteen states.
Solar development in under-resourced communities will be most effective and equitable when trusted community organizations are involved. Panelists discussed a new guidebook for state energy agencies that are looking to strengthen their relationships with local under-resourced communities or are beginning to engage in energy justice work.
This webinar focuses on solar and battery response safety for single and multifamily residential projects.
