The U.S. Energy Department is investing $1.35M in a 3-year collaboration between National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory, GRID Alternatives, University of Michigan, and University of Chicago to explore preferences of low- to moderate-income (LMI) households to create scalable, sustainable models for unlocking widespread solar adoption. This project is one of 17 Projects in which the U.S. Energy Department is investing $21.4 Million to speed solar adoption and maximize solar benefits for states.
