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

You are here

This issue brief discusses some key considerations and related opportunities for deploying solar energy for low-income multifamily housing (buildings with five or more units). It addresses how differences in multifamily housing type and financing structure can influence how such projects impact energy burden. It also profiles two multifamily housing examples that demonstrate how state and local entities have deployed solar energy (photovoltaics) on behalf of low-income residents.
