The Department of Energy’s National Community Solar Partnership will be the topic of discussion on October 12th for Nebraskans for Solar’s first in a series of fall events at UNO’s Community Engagement Center. Erin Cheese, Fellow at the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative, graduate of Creighton University’s Energy Technology Program, and former Nebraskans for Solar Board member for two years will discuss the National Community Solar Partnership and how Nebraskans can get involved.
The partnership works to expand access to community solar throughout the nation, especially in low- and moderate-income households. On July 19, 2016, the White House announced a new goal to enable 1 GW of low- and moderate-income solar by 2020. Nebraskans for Solar is a member of the National Community Solar Partnership. Included in Erin’s talk will be information on joining the National Community Solar Partnership and the benefits. Learn more and see a list of National Community Solar Partnership members here.
