Scaling Up Solar for Under-Resourced Communities - Single-Family Homes

Under the single-family homes portion of the Scaling Up Solar for Under-Resourced Communities, CESA is promoting a program that has successfully supported the installation of more than 1,500 solar projects for LMI homeowners in Connecticut. The program, a partnership between the quasi-governmental Connecticut Green Bank and the solar leasing and energy efficiency company PosiGen, supports solar for LMI homeowners through an elevated LMI solar incentive and a financing and focused marketing initiative. You can view a fact sheet about Connecticut’s program here and read a white paper about it here.

Under the Scaling Up Solar for Under-Resourced Communities Project, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory analyzed the financial performance of Connecticut’s program and determined that the program has successfully reached underserved customers and has reasonable repayment rates given participants’ credit characteristics.

CESA, in collaboration with the Connecticut Green Bank, Inclusive Prosperity Capital, and PosiGen, has formed working group for state officials to learn more about Connecticut’s program and explore launching a publicly supported solar program for LMI homeowners in their states. Joining CESA’s working group enables state officials to access resources for designing and implementing solar programs for LMI homeowners, to request technical assistance from the members of the project team, and to obtain other support for establishing solar programs for LMI homeowners in their state.

CESA and its project partners have also established a learning network where the project team will share information and analysis on Connecticut’s program with other interested stakeholders.
