Project CARE (Clean Affordable Renewable Energy)
The Community Affordable Renewable Energy Project (CARE) is a scalable 100% low-income dedicated 4 MW Community Solar Garden in the Denver Metro Area. The project is led by Housing Authority of the City and County of Denver, with support from GRID Alternatives. Taking place over two phases, the full project will be interconnected with Xcel Energy, by October 2018. Through a model that capitalizes on the solar investment tax credit, renewable energy credits, low-interest community reinvestment act loans, and philanthropy, Project CARE expects to deliver an average of 15% to 20% electric bill savings over 20 years.
