SEPA steps up for National Community Solar Partnership

The Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) has joined the consortium of corporations and nonprofit organizations taking part in the National Community Solar Partnership announced by the Obama Administration on July 7.

In response to the broad range of initiatives aimed at expanding access to solar for middle- and low-income communities, SEPA’s President and CEO Julia Hamm issued the following statement:

“Community solar is a critical tool for bridging the gap between those who can and can’t afford the upfront costs of installing rooftop solar as well as those who, for a wide variety of reasons, may not be able to install solar where they live or work. Equally important, community solar provides a strategic entry point for utilities seeking new ways to meet their customers’ demand for clean energy, while also fostering cooperation and collaboration between utilities, nonprofits and the solar industry.


“SEPA is working with federal agencies and a cross section of industry and nonprofit representatives to develop model project designs and marketing tools to make it easier for communities, utilities and the solar industry to build and reap the benefits of community solar.”
