Webinar: CESA: Community Solar for Low- and Moderate-Income Consumers, Thursday, June 1, 1-2 pm
Event Description

Because community solar can be made accessible to renters and can include flexible terms, it holds promise for spreading the benefits of solar to low- and moderate-income (LMI) consumers. In this webinar, guest speakers from Solstice and from Alpine Bank will present two financially sustainable models for making community solar more available to LMI consumers.

This is one in a series of Sustainable Solar Education Project webinars on bringing the benefits of solar to low-income residents. The Sustainable Solar Education Project, funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative, is helping state and municipal officials to ensure distributed solar electricity is equitable and consumer friendly: http://cesa.org/projects/sustainable-solar/.

      David Miller, Senior Vice President at Alpine Bank, will discuss Alpine Bank’s project, in which the bank bought shares in a community solar project and donated them to a community organization, which in turn allotted the monthly bill credits to low-income households.
