This Low- and Moderate-Income (LMI) solar lease template consumer disclosure form offers an example that states and other stakeholders can use to ensure that LMI customers participating in state programs designed to broaden solar access receive the information they need to understand their solar contracts. This template is meant to be used as a starting point for states building solar lease (or PPA) programs.
This guide offers simple options for states to add Multifamily Affordable Housing (MFAH) solar and/or solar+storage to their application to the $7 billion Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) Solar for All competition (Solar for All) and take advantage of the new tax credit features of the Inflation reduction Act.

This document offers insights into how states can design and launch community solar programs that benefit disadvantaged communities and low- and moderate-income households using the $7 billion Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund Solar for All competition and take advantage of new tax credits features available under the Inflation Reduction Act.
To facilitate the design and launch of LMI single-family homes program by states and to leverage existing funding opportunities from the IRA, CESA produced a template RFP to select on or more solar developers to deliver a solar program to disadvantaged communities and low-income households.
To facilitate the design and launch of LMI solar programs by states and to leverage existing funding opportunities from the IRA, CESA produced this guidance note along with a standard RFP that can be used by states and other relevant stakeholders to design and launch Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund-compliant LMI programs in their state.
This case study details the development of a community solar array and Resilience Hub in Duluth, Minnesota. This project provides a useful model for community-based organizations and state energy agencies interested in developing their own equity-focused energy and resilience projects.
In an effort to reduce the energy burden on low-income Michiganders, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy collaborated with local community action agencies and utilities to develop three separate community solar pilot programs. This case study illustrates how the program partners developed each pilot, what they learned, and what advice they would give to those developing future programs.
This case study analyzes six programs conducted by the Energy Trust of Oregon that have shown success in building meaningful and impactful relationships with community representatives. These programs can serve as a model for other state agencies seeking to develop relationships with community partners in order to better meet their shared goals.
