Multifamily Affordable Housing Collaborative
The Multifamily Affordable Housing (MFAH) Collaborative seeks to demonstrate replicable models for
solar energy deployment that reduce resident’s monthly electric utility bills by at least 10 percent
or provide other direct benefits for low-income residents of multifamily housing.
In partnership with Urban Ingenuity and Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future, the NCSP’s
Multifamily Affordable Housing Collaborative will concentrate on the following objectives:
- Ownership and Financing: Demonstrate promising strategies that overcome barriers
to community solar in MFAH for a variety of ownership and financing structures, and building types,
including either master-metered or multi-metered buildings.
- Various MFAH Types: Provide tools and document replicable models (program action
plans, project implementation models, etc.) to assist housing providers with incorporating solar
into a variety of MFAH types.
- Tenant Benefits: Develop best practices for effective resident engagement in
program development and for providing benefits directly and indirectly to residents from MFAH
- Technology Integration: Feature successful approaches for integrating
complementary technologies (e.g. energy efficiency and storage) with solar to enhance project
value and resident benefits.
