In early 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy launched the Solar in Your Community Challenge, an initiative focused on increasing access to solar energy in underserved communities. Through the project, GEI is providing community solar developers guidance regarding available economic incentives and identifying legal issues that could affect the projects. So far, GEI has assisted teams working to develop community solar projects in Alabama, Mississippi, Maine, Illinois, and Oregon. “Community solar has so much potential to benefit local communities,” says Amelia Schlusser, GEI’s staff attorney and lead on the project. “It has been a real privilege to work with groups around the country who are focused on helping their communities through local solar projects.”
