Low-Income Solar, Part 1: Lessons Learned from Low-Income Energy Efficiency Programs

Thursday, March 23, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

As states seek to increase the adoption of solar among low-income households and communities, the history of low-income energy efficiency programs provides useful lessons. In this webinar, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researcher Ian Hoffman discussed the lessons learned from low-income energy efficiency programs, and how they can be applied to low-income solar programs. Topics covered include how programs can be tailored to different segments of the low-income population, such as multifamily vs. single-family housing, as well as what obstacles have been encountered and what new solutions are proposed.

Panelist: Ian Hoffman, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Moderator: Warren Leon, Clean Energy States Alliance
