Empowering Tomorrow: A Preview of States’ Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund Solar for All Programs

Vero Bourg-Meyer and Allie Garrett | Clean Energy States Alliance

The Clean Energy States Alliance has published a report showing the potential impact of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s $7 billion Solar for All competition. This report provides the first public look into the range of state proposals that have been submitted in response to this competition.

For this report, CESA received exclusive access to the Solar for All applications submitted in 33 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The report summarizes trends across these applications and presents data on the impact that Solar for All programs could have on the low-and-moderate-income solar market. The report includes information about how many total households could be served, how much solar and storage could be installed, breakdowns by sector, and much more. The report can serve as a market readiness tool, to help states prepare for a massive and historic influx of LMI solar funding.

CESA offers technical assistance to states and organizes state convenings to accelerate learning about LMI solar programs and Solar for All across the country. We welcome all states to participate. Resources from CESA, including template documentation, guidance for program design, best practices relevant to consumer protection for state programs, and much more, are available on CESA’s Scaling Up Solar resource page.

Government officials and green bank staff can sign up to receive email updates from CESA related to the Solar for All program by completing this form: https://forms.office.com/r/FxusQA1sk5. Questions about this report or this project can be directed to Vero Bourg-Meyer.
