An analysis of multifamily affordable housing properties in Massachusetts finds that participation in the state’s new battery storage incentive program, called ConnectedSolutions, significantly improves the financial viability of battery storage projects paired with solar (solar+storage) at affordable housing developments. For the majority of properties evaluated, battery storage would not be an economical investment without the ConnectedSolutions program. This report represents the first independent, public analysis of the impact of ConnectedSolutions on the development of solar+storage systems for affordable housing properties.

More reports and resources related to the ConnectedSolutions program are available here.
