DOE SETO RFI: Supporting Successful Solar Plus Storage Deployment Serving Low-Income and Disadvantaged Communities – Due 02/23

Opportunity Title:

RFI: Supporting Successful Solar Plus Storage Deployment Serving Low-Income and Disadvantaged Communities



Opportunity Number:



Through this RFI, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) seeks insight into the resources and support needed, through its existing or expanded work, to ensure successful outcomes of solar and storage deployment serving low-income and disadvantaged communities. The Inflation Reduction Act has dedicated historic levels of funding to catalyze the development of solar programs nationwide that direct benefits towards low-income and disadvantaged communities (LIDAC). The SETO Workforce and Equitable Access (WEA) team seeks input on what nationally coordinated and supported resources are needed to ensure this historic investment in distributed solar leads to equitable and successful delivery of benefits through low-income residential solar plus storage, community solar, and other distributed solar located in or serving low-income and disadvantaged communities.

For each of the categories listed below, feedback is sought to determine what the greatest challenges are amongst a wide variety of stakeholders, including (but not limited to) entities that design, administer, implement, participate in and/or benefit from LIDAC solar deployment. This RFI also seeks feedback on what types of coordination, tools and resources will be needed for each of these stakeholders to meet department and administration priorities related to equitable access to solar and equitable distribution of its benefits. “Resources” in the context of this RFI is not meant to refer to additional funding for these programs; it refers to technical assistance, informational and other reference materials or tools to help with the implementation of programs at their currently appropriated levels.


  • Category 1: Maximizing Impact
