Overview

As solar generation continues to proliferate, electric cooperatives are making sure the benefits can be accessed by all their members, regardless of income. Electric cooperatives serve 92% of the persistent poverty counties across the United States, with poverty rates ranging from 20% to over 60%. For these low-income members, new technologies can bring outsized benefits, but are often out of financial reach. Join us to learn how co-ops are partnering with tribal communities, philanthropic organizations and other members of their communities to make solar energy accessible to low- and moderate-income members through community solar.

This webinar is part of NRECA’s ACCESS (Achieving Cooperative Community Equitable Solar Sources) project and is supported by an award from the U.S. Department of Energy through the Solar Energy Technology Office.
