Low-Income Solar Policy Guide

Share

The growth of solar in the United States provides a tremendous opportunity to address some of the greatest challenges faced by lower-income communities: the high cost of housing, unemployment, and pollution. Solar can provide long-term financial relief to families struggling with high and unpredictable energy costs, living-wage jobs in an industry where the workforce has increased 168% over the past seven years, and a source of clean, local energy sited in communities that have been disproportionately impacted by traditional power generation.

Originally launched in 2016 by GRID Alternatives, Vote Solar and the Center for Social Inclusion, this newly updated version of the Low-Income Solar Policy Guide contains a wide variety of resources to drive the adoption of new policies and programs that support low-income access to solar in the U.S.
