Scaling Up Solar for Under-Resourced Communities

CESA is leading a wide-ranging initiative to accelerate the development of solar projects that benefit low-and-moderate-income (LMI) households and communities.

The “Scaling Up Solar for Under-Resourced Communities Project” is being supported by a three-year funding award of $1.1 million from the US Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office. The project began on October 1, 2019.

The project focuses on three distinct subsets of the LMI solar market:

  • Single-family homes
  • Manufactured homes
  • Multifamily affordable housing

The project is made possible through a funding award from the US Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office.

The US Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office supports early-stage research and development to improve the affordability, reliability, and performance of solar technologies on the grid. Learn more at energy.gov/solar-office.
