Advancing Energy Equity through Community Solar
The spike in energy costs have American households looking to clean energy solutions, including solar power, to deliver cost savings. Historically, the benefits of solar power have not been accessible to all — with rooftop solar being out of reach for many low-income and Black and Hispanic households. But community solar projects can help low-income and disadvantaged communities reap the benefits of clean energy.

Federal funding and recent incentives from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) promise to accelerate solar deployment and advance the Biden administration’s historic Justice40 initiative. The IRA includes significant tax incentives for a variety of solar projects, including projects connected to low-income communities and community solar projects that provide economic benefits to low-income residents.

Community solar can offer financial advantages and flexibility that make it an accessible and cost-saving offering for low-income households and disadvantaged communities. Community solar projects can also help build community wealth, mitigate environmental harms and strengthen resilience.

Join World Resources Institute on September 27th, 12:30-2pm ET, for a conversation with Nicole Steele, Senior Advisor for Equity and Workforce, Solar Energy Technologies Office at the U.S. Department of Energy and lead of the National Community Solar Partnership (NCSP). We’ll discuss how NCSP is working to ensure community solar benefits are reaching disadvantaged and historically marginalized communities and how the Justice40 initiative is driving the equitable distribution of the benefits of clean energy investments. The conversation will be followed by a panel of industry and nonprofit leaders working to ensure the benefits of community solar flow to all segments of society.
