Technical Assistance Fund

Providing technical support to build local resilience.

Clean Energy Group’s Technical Assistance Fund (TAF) fills a critical resource gap by equipping community-serving organizations with the information they need to advance a resilient solar and battery storage project toward the next stage in development.

The TAF provides dedicated one-on-one support to help organizations gain a better understanding of solar+storage and its benefits, along with targeted funding to engage technical expertise to produce a solar+storage feasibility assessment for a proposed project. Clean Energy Group serves as an advisor throughout the process to ensure that each organization’s questions are answered and their unique energy resilience, economic, and community goals are prioritized.

Who We Serve

The TAF supports organizations that provide essential services to low-income and underserved communities, environmental justice communities, and communities of color so that they can develop resilient power solutions for critical community service providers in the event of a power outage. Clean Energy Group works with community centers, emergency shelters, cooling centers, affordable housing, food pantries, fire departments, and health clinics to provide information and guidance. Working with dozens of local and regional organizations, including municipalities, affordable housing providers, institutions of faith, community-based organizations, and nonprofit service providers, CEG is committed to awarding 50 percent of TAF funds annually to support the resilient power efforts of BIPOC-led organizations.
