We offer several solar programs for disadvantaged communities to enjoy the benefits of clean energy.
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.
Homeowners may qualify for a free home solar system from our partner, GRID Alternatives. Find out if the Disadvantaged Communities - Single-family Solar Homes (DAC-SASH) program, a state of California program for low or fixed-income families, can help you. SCE has partnered with GRID Alternatives to be the statewide administrator of this program. Your home must be in a DAC to qualify. Learn more
