Encore Renewable Energy is pleased to announce that the Company has joined the National Community Solar Partnership, which was established as part of a White House Initiative to increase solar access to low- and moderate-income households.
The partnership is a collaboration between the Department of Energy (DOE), the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), representatives from solar companies, NGOs, and state and local community leaders. The mission of the National Partnership is to leverage the momentum in the public and private sector to address barriers to solar access, particularly for renters who must rely on actions of property owners, favorable utility and housing policies, and financing solutions acceptable to investment markets.
“Encore has worked on a number of community solar projects which have delivered solar electricity to low- and moderate-income households,” said Encore President Chad Farrell “and we will be announcing several additional similar projects in the near-term. We are committed to this important area of solar energy development and are thrilled to have the opportunity to join the National Community Solar Partnership under the leadership of the White House.”
