Enhancing Affordability with Solar

 

Resources from two CCEF initiatives combined to make a 101.50-kilowatt solar photovoltaic installation viable at the Sunset Ridge affordable housing development in New Haven. In addition to receiving support from the On-Site Renewable Distributed Generation Program, the Sunset Ridge project was supported with a grant from CCEF’s Affordable Housing Initiative.

 

The Affordable Housing Initiative is an incentive program that helps make solar PV installations an attractive, affordable option for developers of both small- and large-scale affordable housing projects. Through this initiative, developers who install solar PV systems at affordable housing projects may apply for a grant to defray a portion of the upfront installation costs.

 

According to the developer of Sunset Ridge, installing solar energy systems on housing for low income families helps to preserve long-term affordability – through stabilized electricity costs – and allows residents to reduce their carbon footprint.
