SaveSolar develops Community Solar assets in order to offer discounted energy to all residents of the district. This includes apartments, renters, homes, low-income housing or community residents who may not be able to install solar.
We achieve this by leasing building rooftops, developing solar assets and compensating owners for the rooftop lease in order to deliver energy to the utility.
Watch our explainer video for more information.
We finance all Community Solar assets at 100% of installation costs through our renewable energy fund
Our team has experience developing 400 MW of solar assets globally
We source and install market-leading equipment including panels, inverters and optimizers
We have worked closely with SaveSolar to develop 1,280 kW of solar across 45 buildings at the Fort Chaplin Park Apartments complex (548 units), that were submitted as part of Solar for All 2019.
In our time working with SaveSolar, which involves projects in Illinois, California and D.C., they have shown a unique ability to navigate the tricky regulatory landscape while securing partnerships and implementing technical solutions to maximize benefits for everyone, but especially for the community.
Over 2019 we worked closely with SaveSolar to rehabilitate rooftops and install 100 kW of solar on three properties. SaveSolar coordinated roofing replacement on two properties and provided us a zero-out-of-pocket model through structured finance that covered the cost of both roofing and solar.
SaveSolar’s efforts to help meet regulatory requirements like Erosion and Sediment Control, push for site design and permitting revisions, and working with DOEE to speed PEPCO’s interconnection process is part of the reason Dupont Commons will soon feature one of the District’s largest ground-mounted solar systems.
