With a funding opportunity announced this week, the DC Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) is working to bring solar energy to low-income residents. DOEE announced the availability of $100,000 of funding for nonprofits and private companies to develop a model for financing and building Community Solar Projects (CSPs) in the District. CSPs are an innovative way to increase access to clean, renewable energy to residents who may not own their home, or who live in multifamily buildings. Successful project proposals must be financially sustainable and should clearly demonstrate how private properties can be leveraged to transfer the benefits of renewable energy to low-income District residents.
