Event Navigation

Katie Shelton, Senior Manager, Market Engagement, of the Connecticut Green Bank, will discuss the opportunites and advantages of the Solar Marketplace Assistance Program for affordable multifamily housing providers. See below for more information.
The Connecticut Green Bank has been offering its Solar Marketplace Assistance Program (Solar MAP) to state and municipal properties successfully for a few years. Starting in 2024, affordable multifamily housing providers can take advantage of this comprehensive solar development support from start to finish. Solar MAP is a no-cost technical assistance program that identifies project sites, conducts feasibility and project design, and provides the financing, incentives, and contractors for a viable project.

Learn how Solar MAP can help this traditionally underserved market access the benefits of solar more easily. Through the passage of recent legislation, affordable multifamily housing solar projects are treated as residential projects under that state incentive program, which will enable the deployment of more solar to these properties because the tariff agreements are substantially higher (currently ~ 37 cents/ kWh), and projects won’t need to wait for a competitive solicitation in the commercial solar program.
This presentation is completely FREE and is pending approval for 1 AIA LU.
