Travis Lowder from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory discusses common residential solar financing choices, solar financing consumer protection issues, publicly supported solar finance programs from around the country, and broad solar financing trends.
This webinar was a presentation of the Clean Energy States Alliance’s Sustainable Solar Education Project. The project, funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative Solar Training and Education for Professionals program, will help state and municipal officials to ensure distributed solar electricity is equitable and consumer friendly. The project will assist states and municipalities improve consumer information, implement consumer protection measures, and find ways to make solar more accessible to low- and moderate-income households.
