Funding to reduce barriers to solar energy adoption
U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm announced a request for proposals for the Solar Energy Innovation Network. The Innovation Network supports multistakeholder teams that use real-world data to research and share ways to reduce barriers to solar energy adoption. In this round of technical assistance, the topics are:
Elevating Equity in Residential Solar Deployment
Elevating Equity in Commercial-Scale Solar Deployment
Teams’ solutions will help create local jobs, decrease the percentage of household income spent on energy costs, and/or support local businesses in underserved communities and should be replicable across the country. Teams should be composed of multiple stakeholders with a range of expertise and capabilities, such as state and local governments, community-based organizations, electric utilities, companies, nonprofits, and universities.
