DEED Webinar: Increasing Rural Household Access to Community Solar Programs

Community solar programs have emerged to provide residents and businesses access where individually owned systems face barriers.

Description

Community solar programs have emerged to provide residents and businesses access where individually owned systems face barriers. This webinar details the project team at WPPI Energy and Chart House Energy on this webinar who discuss how they identified strategies to cost effectively increase participation of low to moderate income (LMI) household participation in public power community solar programs. The research involved qualitative interviews, focus groups, a survey to evaluate community interest and participation rates, and a cost-benefit analysis of various program features including demand-side energy efficiency options. 

The webinar highlights how an inclusive community solar program was developed and how the Excel based tool created can be used to determine a cost-effective community solar project scale. 

Recommended for:

Utility managers, community leaders, and utility personnel involved in community engagement, customer service, and solar programs.

Speakers:

  • Brett Niemi, Senior Energy Services Representative, WPPI Energy
