This report describes backup power needs and opportunities at Florida’s Community Health Centers. The report includes a technoeconomic analysis for using solar+storage for emergency backup power at health centers, and provides insights and recommendations for resilient power adoption at Health Centers nationwide.
These fact sheets introduce each of the six bonus credits available within the ITC for solar, wind, and storage projects. These fact sheets share who is eligible to apply for each credit and which credits can be paired together.
This document summarizes some of the key project outcomes of the Resilient Power Project through providing information, knowledge-building support, and technical assistance to organizations working in low-income communities and communities of color across the country.
CEG submitted comments in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Request for Information seeking public comment on core design aspects of the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund. CEG’s comments focus on the importance of providing technical assistance funding support through the GGRF, particularly in support of projects being developed by under-resourced organizations and in service of historically marginalized communities.
Resilient Solar and Battery Storage for Cooling Centers: Mitigating the Impacts of Extreme Heat on Vulnerable Populations
Extreme heat is responsible for more weather-related deaths than any other weather event. Community service providers and emergency preparedness leaders scramble each summer to ensure those at high risk – including electricity-dependent, medically vulnerable, and elderly individuals as well as those without access to in-home air conditioning – have access to cooling centers, air-conditioned locations…
