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 Power Project Case Study – Solar Responders Brings Resilient Power to Puerto Rico’s Fire Stations
Solar Responders equips Puerto Rico’s fire stations with solar+storage to provide backup power and ensure effective communication and emergency services during natural disasters. This case study includes technical and financial details, as well as lessons learned over the course of the project.
Overcoming Barriers to Solar+Storage in Affordable Housing: A Survey of Multifamily Affordable Housing Developers
Clean Energy Group conducted a survey of affordable housing owners and developers, technical services providers, and other stakeholders to assess existing market barriers. A new report summarizes the results of this survey and suggests actions to bring the benefits of solar+storage to the people who need it most.
Clean Energy Group ha publicado una traducción al español de una nueva guía que aborda las preguntas más frecuentes sobre la energía solar fotovoltaica y las tecnologías de almacenamiento de baterías (Solar+Almacenamiento).
The information presented in this guide focuses primarily on customer-sited, behind-the-meter solar+storage installations, though much of the information is relevant to other types of projects as well, including storage-only projects and front-of-the-meter solar+storage projects. It is meant to serve as a starting point to establish a foundation of knowledge and understanding for individuals and organizations beginning to explore solar+storage options for their homes, businesses, or community facilities.
The Energy Conservation and Management Division of New Mexico has made the State Forestry Division Cimarron District Office, one of its most remote offices, more resilient through a recently installed solar PV and battery storage system.
This project demonstrates how solar paired with battery storage can reliably power critical services for affordable housing residents in the event of an outage, while also delivering economic benefits to low-income households.
A leading nonprofit mobility services provider and emergency second responder invested in resilience upgrades to power critical transportation services for vulnerable populations in the event of an outage. This case study includes technical and financial details, as well as lessons learned over the course of the project.
The largest affordable housing provider in Boulder installed a solar+storage system to provide command post services during emergencies. This case study includes technical and financial details, as well as lessons learned over the course of the project.
