Goals and Vision

The Neighborhood Solar Equity team aims to build solar that serves our communities at every turn. We envision a District of Columbia where both the energy produced by solar facilities and the profit generated by its production are put towards creating a more sustainable and equitable DC.

Goals of Solar

The goals of this NSE—Solar for All project are to:
  1. Provides an opportunity for renewable energy in the District of Columbia.
  2. Share the financial benefits of renewable energy with low-income D.C. residents, and raise awareness about solar, sustainability and energy conservation in the broader D.C. community.
  3. Maximize the financial impact of public dollars by using profits of a grant supported project to catalyze additional solar installations and community investments in D.C.
  4. Address the core barriers to deploying solar identified by the District of Columbia
