Making Solar Energy Accessible to Everyone

Join Nicole Steele, Executive Director of GRID Alternatives’ Mid-Atlantic office to learn about the success stories of providing community-scale solar access at the local and regional scale, where there are often different rules, permitting and incentives. She will discuss how GRID works with community partners, volunteers and job trainees to implement solar power and energy efficiency for low-income families, and describe what works in which areas and why, including low income solar rebate programs, single-family versus multi-family and community solar models, homeowners versus renters, and innovative job training workforce development approaches involving schools or veteran communities.
