Sustainable Solar Education Project - Webinars & Events
Guest speakers from NREL discussed their forthcoming report, which reviews existing and emerging LMI community solar programs, discusses key questions related to program design, outlines how states can leverage incentives and finance structures to lower the cost of LMI community solar, and examines marketing and outreach considerations.
What happens to solar photovoltaic (PV) panels when they come to the end of their useful lifetime? Garvin Heath, a senior analyst at NREL, shared lessons learned and key insights from his research to inform state-level efforts to develop effective, efficient, and affordable PV module recycling and recovery strategies.
This webinar highlighted two programs from CESA’s 2018 State Leadership in Clean Energy Awards: Connecticut’s “Solar for All” Partnership, and Minnesota’s MPRB Solar Demonstration Project.
Through the U.S. DOE’s Grid Modernization Lab Consortium, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has developed electricity affordability metrics at the state and county levels for the United States. This webinar introduced a simple spreadsheet interface to map these electricity affordability metrics.
This workshop helped state officials identify and implement solar consumer protection strategies.
Guest speakers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory discussed their new report on income trends of residential solar adopters. It is the most comprehensive analysis of this type to date, and one of few to utilize household-level income estimates.
In this webinar, Jeff Cook and Lori Bird of NREL discussed the most promising strategies state policymakers might consider using to finance solar PV for low- and moderate-income customers across three housing types: single family, multifamily, and manufactured housing.
This webinar provides an overview of the technology, value proposition, and financing options for projects that pair solar with battery storage for public and affordable housing.
This webinar discussed ownership and finance pathways for solar projects for public and affordable housing.
This interactive webinar discussion is a follow-up to two earlier webinars: “Using Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) Funds for Low-Income Solar” (1/11), and “Using Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Funds for Low-Income Solar” (1/16).
