Sustainable Solar Education Project - Webinars & Events
LIHEAP serves as an emergency bill assistance service, but state LIHEAP administrators have flexibility to use some program funds to reduce long-term dependence on energy assistance. Some argue that these LIHEAP funds should be used for low-income solar.
Traditionally, the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) focused on increasing energy efficiency for low-income households. As solar costs have declined, interest in using WAP funds for low-income solar deployment has increased.
This interactive webinar discussion is a follow-up to two earlier webinars: “Approaches for Involving Low-Income Communities with Solar” (11/30) and “Connecticut’s Low- and Moderate-Income Solar Customer Segmentation Analysis” (12/5).
The Connecticut Green Bank engaged the marketing firm C+C to perform a customer analysis to identify the segments of Connecticut’s LMI population most likely to adopt solar. In this webinar, speakers from the Connecticut Green Bank and C+C will share the results of their analysis and insights for a national audience.
In this webinar, representatives from PosiGen Solar and GRID Alternatives, organizations with extensive experience bringing solar to low-income customers, discussed how they engage with low-income customers and communities in order to spread the benefits of solar.
This was the second in a two-part webinar course on low and moderate income solar policy and principles. Speakers from CESA and Vote Solar presented.
In this webinar, guest speakers from the Colorado Energy Office, Lotus Engineering and Sustainability, and NREL described and evaluated the Low-Income Community Solar Demonstration Project, which provides over 1 MW of electricity and serves over 300 low-income Coloradans.
This interactive webinar discussion is a follow-up to CESA’s 10/13 webinar, “Income Verification for Low-Income Solar Programs.” This webinar is open to state and municipal officials only.
CESA hosted a full-day workshop on deploying solar for public and affordable housing. The workshop was held in conjunction with the National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) 2017 Annual Conference on October 14th-17th in Denver, CO.
In this webinar, speakers from the California Department of Community Services and Development, Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources, and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center will discuss their income verification processes for low-income solar programs.
