Solar for All is helping D.C. residents go solar

In 2016, Solar United Neighbors of D.C. secured a higher renewable portfolio standard (RPS) in the District. The new standard doubled the District’s renewable energy requirement, including the solar carve-out. D.C. will now be 50 percent renewably-powered by 2032. The legislation included a new program known as Solar for All. The program creates a funding mechanism and mandate for the D.C. Government to provide free locally produced solar credits to nearly every low-income household in the District. Learn more about Solar for All in D.C.
