How can we protect vulnerable people when the power goes out? Getting it right will be a key energy equity test for the Biden administration’s infrastructure plan.
To gain more insight into the barriers of implementing solar+storage in under-served communities, Clean Energy Group conducted a survey of municipalities, community organizations, affordable housing developers, and technical service providers working in low-income communities.
Energy equity has become an increasing priority at both the national and state levels. As offshore wind moves into a major development phase, ensuring that it advances energy equity and environmental justice is essential.
If we learn anything from the Texas blackouts, and the death and suffering that have resulted, it should be this: distributed resilient solar+storage systems are no longer a luxury – they are an essential tool to protect citizens from power outages, and modernize the grid so outages become less frequent and severe.
Clean Energy Group recently surveyed affordable housing stakeholders to assess what’s holding solar+storage projects back.
