The California Energy Commission has released a study on how to overcome barriers to low-income adoption of energy efficiency and renewable energy. The study considers both barriers inherent to poverty, such as insufficient access to capital, and policy and programmatic barriers, such as data inadequacy. Recommendations include establishing a task force to coordinate efforts, making sure the benefits of community solar are available to low-income populations, and continuing to test financing options.
