NASEO and the National Energy Assistance Directors Association Publish Report on State Community Solar Policy Considerations and Project Profiles

Source: NASEO

The report, Inclusive Shared Solar: The State Policy Landscape and Select Community Solar Project Profiles, provides an overview of low to moderate-income (LMI) community solar policies to help State Energy Offices, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) offices, and other key stakeholders understand and take advantage of opportunities to expand the reach and impact of community solar programs. It discusses common LMI community solar policy and program considerations, such as carve-outs, incentives, program capacity limits, and subscriber eligibility and compensation. The report also profiles four projects in three different states to demonstrate how state policy decisions can impact community solar program design and implementation. The resource is a part of the Inclusive Shared Solar Initiative, a multi-state partnership coordinated by NASEO and the National Energy Assistance Directors Association with the goal of making community solar more accessible through innovative partnerships between State Energy Offices, LIHEAP offices, solar providers, utilities, community-based organizations, and other interested parties.
