How Solar Can Expand Its Socioeconomic Reach

Innovative solutions can help solar companies reach the low-to-moderate-income market, according to a report from Vote Solar. According to 2016 Census and FICO data, 44-78 million people in the United States qualify as low-income and/or low-credit. But many of these customers are being left out of the clean energy transition because of financial barriers to securing access to solar products.

Habitat for Humanity Pioneers Affordable Net-Zero Housing

Habitat for Humanity (HFH) is leading the way in developing sustainable, high-efficiency housing for the low- and fixed-income communities. Its latest project, the River Falls Eco Village in Wisconsin, is the first development of its kind to demonstrate that net-zero homes can provide tangible economic and social benefits to low-to-middle-income (LMI) communities.

The Struggle to Combine Energy Efficiency and Solar Power

How can programs motivate homeowners to make their homes energy-efficient before installing solar panels? And how can incentives support a whole-house retrofit approach that will optimize energy savings and prevent solar systems from being oversized? California, Wisconsin, New Jersey, and Austin Energy have been grappling with this challenge for years. Their experiences show well-designed incentives may drive the joint adoption of solar power and energy efficiency. Simply introducing energy efficiency requirements into the solar installation process may not be successful without adding financial motivation.
