In 2016 we completed a pilot project with the Fuel Fund of Maryland to explore the potential of a pre-paid power purchase agreement (PPA) model for bringing solar to low-income families in Baltimore. The pre-paid PPA model allowed us to utilize the 30 percent federal tax credit to decrease project costs, and to overcome many participants’ low credit score issues. We found that the solar installations enabled participants to significantly reduce and stabilize their energy costs from day one.
