To reduce impacts and dangers of power outages in communities now and in the future, the Resilient Power Project works to provide technology and policy solutions to address three challenges: Community Resiliency, Climate Adaptation, and Climate Mitigation.
The Resilient Power Project, a joint initiative of Clean Energy Group and Meridian Institute, is focused on accelerating market development of resilient, clean energy solutionsfor affordable housing and critical community facilities in low-income and disadvantaged communities. The Project is targeted to the deployment of solar PV combined with energy storage (solar+storage) – to power essential services during extended power outages and to reduce the economic burden of energy costs in vulnerable communities. The goal is to further clean energy equity by ensuring that all communities have access to the economic, health, and resiliency benefits that solar and energy storage technologies can provide.
Clean Energy Group’s role in this process is to inform, coordinate, and assist in the planning and implementation of resilient power projects in underserved communities, in both rural and urban areas, across the country. In addition to providing program guidance to policy makers and technical assistance to developers and community organizations, we also prepare reports and analysis on resilient power programs and projects, clean energy finance tools, and best practices.
In order to assist in the process of building stronger, more secure communities through resilient power, Clean Energy Group has compiled many of these resources into aResilient Power Toolkit, designed to make information on resilient power easily accessible. The toolkit contains links to reports, webinars, presentations, and other educational resources to give organizations the information needed to understand how resilient power works and how communities can deploy solar+storage to increase resiliency, reduce energy costs, and improve public health.
As we evaluate and re-evaluate the undoubtedly substantial and lasting impacts COVID-19 will have on our work and the work of our partners across the country moving forward, it is more evident than ever that resilient power is a critical component to improving health outcomes in the event of a crisis like the world is currently experiencing.

In Oregon, resilient power is increasingly being recognized as an emergency preparedness and mitigation tool as state leaders and emergency managers prepare for the next Cascadia event, an anticipated magnitude 9.0 earthquake to occur along the Cascadia Subduction Zone fault line which stretches from Canada’s Vancouver Island to Northern California.
