Issue Brief: Reducing Energy Burden for Low-income Residents in Multifamily Housing with Solar Energy

Cost Studies, Multifamily, Renewables

This Issue Brief from DOE discusses some of the key considerations and related opportunities for deploying solar for low-income multifamily housing. In particular, program administrators may need to consider how differences in multifamily housing financing structure and type can influence resident eligibility as well as resulting impacts on energy burden in both on-site and off-site solar installations. This issue brief touches on these considerations and profile two multifamily housing examples that demonstrate how state and local entities have deployed solar energy (photovoltaics) on behalf of low-income residents
