Expanding Solar Access: Pathways for Multifamily Housing

| By Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC)

This new guide from the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) outlines two potential paths to enable greater solar access for renters and multifamily residents, and low-to-moderate income communities: (1) on-site shared solar, via an arrangement that allows energy generation credits from a single solar system to be shared virtually among multiple tenant accounts; and (2) off-site/remote shared solar, which allows multiple dispersed customers to share the economic benefits of a single renewable energy system and receive credits on their utility bills for the electricity generated by that common system.
