Project Description

Project / Program Description

We'd like to help Low to moderate income residents in New Haven making less than the median income in the City of New Haven to reduce their energy burden by working with our consultant, Capital for Change, to use innovative sub-metering agreements between the property owner and tenant that will allow property owners to share the savings from solar arrays with their tenants.    Currently, 70% of residents in New Haven rent and are left out of current programs to help them reduce their energy burden through energy efficiency programs and installation of solar arrays.  Capital for Change will work with LLCs, non-profits, schools, clinics and mutifamily homeowners to help us increase access to solar arrays in the most disadvantaged neighborhoods in New Haven where most of the Low to moderate income residents are concentrated.
