Build Community Solar for the Benefit of DC Residents

The DCSEU is soliciting bids from contractors and development teams to install CREFs that will enable the DCSEU and the Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE) to extend the benefits of solar power to income-qualified District residents. Selected bidders will receive incentives and be able to take advantage of this additional $1.1 million+ in funding to install solar at community solar host sites with all output designated to income-qualified residents.
