Low-Income Solar Access

As the national solar trade association, SEIA encourages solutions to maximize access to solar energy to all families and communities, regardless of zip code, income level, or any other factor. Many low and moderate income (LMI) communities are missing out on the benefits of solar + storage technologies. These benefits can include cost savings, resilience against natural disasters, health improvements and more. Intentional and thoughtful action – on the part of policymakers and private industry – is necessary to expand solar & its benefits to all Americans.

Expanding Access to Solar Energy

There are a variety of ways to increase solar access to low and moderate income communities, including community solar programs, tax policies, and more. SEIA is working with partners in the equity and environmental justice community to increase these opportunities in communities around the country.
