This Resource Guide is the culmination of a multi-year effort to develop a sustainable and scalable approach for the deployment of solar photovoltaic (PV) and potentially solar PV-plus-energy storage solutions for the benefit of the low-income (LI) residents of multifamily affordable housing (MFAH). ICAST has developed this Guide to help legislators, regulators, utilities, investors, program implementers, and other stakeholders better understand the barriers and how to overcome them to deliver Solar PV at scale to LI tenants of MFAH. The Guide includes best practices, lessons learned, case studies, key processes, resources, and tools, for replication by others. This material is based upon work supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) under the Solar Energy Technologies Office Award Number DE-EE0008568.
