Through the Sustainable Solar Education Project[projects/sustainable-solar/], CESA conducted a full-day, in-person workshop for state officials on planning for bringing solar to low- and moderate-income (LMI) residents. Representatives from sixteen states attended the workshop, which was held in Washington, DC on June 14th. During the workshop, state participants engaged with leading experts and peers from across the country in discussions on such topics as financing for LMI solar, using community solar to advance solar for LMI households, LMI solar+storage as a strategy to reduce lifecycle costs, and harnessing existing low-income and housing programs for solar. The workshop included sessions for state officials to work together to generate and develop program ideas and strategies to bring the benefits of solar to LMI residents. Workshop materials are available here[webinars/sustainable-solar-education-project-workshop/].
