Overview

Solar photovoltaics (PV) have matured over the past two decades to an accepted and fundamental part of the modern grid. However, challenges remain with how to make solar energy affordable for communities with fewer financial resources. In the second part of this webinar series, find out how America's rural electric cooperatives are working together to explore innovative financing options and uncovering trends to provide solar energy access to low and moderate income (LMI) individuals in their communities.

This series 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.
