IREC, in partnership with Spark Northwest and the Center for Sustainable Energy, released a new guide that outlines two potential pathways to enable greater solar access for renters and multifamily residents and LMI communities in Seattle.
New Guide for Multifamily Solar
Lifting the Solar Eclipse on Renters & Multifamilies
As I travel to cities across the country, I observe that new apartments, condominiums and mixed-use residential and commercial developments are cropping up around nearly every corner. Growing at a similar clip, residential solar installations on single family homes have soared, averaging a 68 percent annual growth rate for the last 10 years, resulting in a historic number of Americans reaping economic, environmental and societal benefits. It’s time to address the policy gaps that are eclipsing the solar opportunity for this growing sector of Americans.
