This document summarizes lessons learned from the State Energy Strategies project, a three-year collaboration between CESA and six states to implement innovative strategies to expand solar adoption in low-income communities.
This directory lists and describes state clean energy programs for low- and moderate-income residents and communities.
This guide is a collection of best practices, ideas, and principles that provide states a foundation for building equitable relationships with community-based organizations and for working with them on solar development.
This report aims to inform state policymakers about the structure and benefits of the ConnectedSolution battery storage program model. It summarizes barriers to scaling up distributed battery storage, explains how the ConnectedSolutions program was developed in the Northeast, and discusses why the program has been successful.
An analysis of multifamily affordable housing properties in Massachusetts finds that participation in the state’s new battery storage incentive program, called ConnectedSolutions, significantly improves the financial viability of solar+storage at affordable housing developments.
As part of CESA’s Scaling Up Solar for Under-Resourced Communities project, Clean Energy Group conducted a survey of affordable housing owners and developers, technical services providers, and other stakeholders to assess existing market barriers. A new report summarizes the results of this survey and suggests actions to bring the benefits of solar+storage to the people who need it most.
This guide provides information on clean heating and cooling technologies to help Vermonters make informed decisions regarding heating and cooling their homes with clean and renewable energy.
This report explains the steps Massachusetts took to become the first state to integrate energy storage technologies into its energy efficiency plan, including actions to 1) expand the goals and definition of energy efficiency to include peak demand reduction, and 2) show that customer-sited battery storage can pass the required cost-effectiveness test.
