Residential Solar Programs


We offer several solar programs for disadvantaged communities to enjoy the benefits of clean energy.

Making a Difference in Your Community

As solar adoption and investment have increased throughout the state, low income and disadvantaged communities (DACs) have lagged behind. DACs are defined as the top 25 percent most disadvantaged communities in California according to CalEnviroScreen 3.0.

We have embraced low-income solar programs by partnering with diverse stakeholders including building owners, affordable housing tenants, solar financing entities and solar installers. We are committed to providing low-income customers with solar programs to enjoy the benefits of clean energy. We look forward to using our experience and success to continue to support our customers as programs evolves.
