Slides from this webinar are available as a pdf here.

The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) assists low-income families with their home energy bills. LIHEAP serves as an emergency bill assistance service, but state LIHEAP administrators have flexibility to use some program funds to reduce long-term dependence on energy assistance. Some argue that these LIHEAP funds should be used for low-income solar.

This webinar featured a presentation by Jason Edens, the Director of the Rural Renewable Energy Alliance, which is exploring models for using LIHEAP funds for low-income participation in community solar project. 

This webinar was presented by CESA as part of the Sustainable Solar Education Project.
