Community Solar Pilot Workshops

CSD is hosting a series of workshops in Fresno, Los Angeles, and Sacramento to promote awareness for the Low-Income Weatherization Program Community Solar Pilot. Through this Pilot, CSD intends to make up to $5 million available to fund Community Solar projects that benefit local, low-income constituencies. The purpose of these workshops is to: 

  • Build an awareness of Community Solar;
  • Inform interested parties of the opportunity to respond to an upcoming Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA); and
  • Foster partnerships among prospective bidders.

CSD is inviting individuals to participate in these workshops from many pertinent areas of Community Solar, including solar project developers, local governments, community organizations, utility companies, affordable housing developers, investors, and others. By bringing these individuals and groups together, we hope to encourage partnerships that can lead to innovative and impactful project proposals. In addition to presenting general project information, these workshops will include round-table discussions on key topic areas, such as building partnerships, financing, and community development strategies.

Workshops are being held during the first two weeks of November. You can learn more and register for the workshops here

In July 2017, CSD released a Request for Information (RFI) to give interested parties the opportunity to provide feedback on the design of the proposed Community Solar Pilot. The Community Solar Pilot RFI can be found here.
