Shared Renewable Energy for Low- to Moderate-Income Consumers: Policy Guidelines and Model Provisions

These guidelines support the adoption and implementation of shared renewables programs that provide tangible benefits to LMI individuals and households.

IREC’s Shared Renewable Energy for Low-to Moderate-Income Consumers: Policy Guidelines and Model Provisions provides information and tools for policymakers, regulators, utilities, shared renewable energy developers, program administrators and others. The guidelines and accompanying model provisions are intended to  function in tandem with IREC’s existing Model Rules for Shared Renewable Energy Programs, which have helped guide and inform numerous state and utility shared renewable energy programs to date. 

“Opening more neighborhood doors to solar and other renewable energy is our goal with these guidelines,” says IREC President/CEO Larry Sherwood, “specifically doors of low or moderate income homes and those in disadvantaged communities.”
