Governments have invested more than $100 billion dollars in solar energy projects. Those investments have reduced the cost of solar energy for industrial users, retail, agriculture, government, and wealthy homeowners. Unfortunately, many non-profits and nearly all low and moderate-income households lack the ability to use tax credits, cannot qualify for solar financing, or do not own the building they occupy, so non-profit organizations and low-income households have had almost no access to the benefits of low-cost solar electricity.
Impact Shared Solar wants to make low-cost solar energy available to both non-profits and to LMI households. We break the barrier for tenants, non-profits and low and moderate-income households that has been preventing them from benefiting from the cost savings that solar energy provides.
