SolSmart Webinar Part 1: Resources to Support Initiatives for Low-to-Moderate Income Communities

This SolSmart webinar serves as an educational resource for local governments interested in better understanding market barriers and expanding solar and energy efficiency deployment in low to moderate income (LMI) communities. Viewers will be able to explore and visualize data developed by the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) focused on how rooftop solar on LMI housing represents an opportunity to help modernize the U.S electric grid and advance energy affordability in LMI communities. NREL and the American Council on an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) also discuss financing options and incentives for solar development and energy efficiency in LMI communities.
