On Tuesday, January 25, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Community Solar Partnership (NCSP) will host its second Annual SummitTo 5 Million and Beyond: Community Solar’s Pathway to Success.”

NCSP is a coalition of over 800 stakeholders working to expand access to affordable community solar. NCSP recently announced a new target to power the equivalent of 5 million households with community solar by 2025, realizing $1 billion in energy bill savings.

At the summit, NCSP and DOE leadership will discuss the plan to reach this new target, how to overcome barriers to equitable deployment, and what achieving it will mean for the community solar industry. Speakers will include Kelly Speakes-Backman, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and Jahi Wise, White House Senior Advisor for Climate Policy and Finance.

They will be joined by speakers from the solar industry and state and local governments across America, including Katherine Hamilton, Chair of 38 North Solutions, who will discuss the pivotal role community solar plays in their renewable energy goals.

We hope you will join us to hear how NCSP is building capacity and expertise, unlocking new community solar markets, making financing more accessible, streamlining customer acquisition, and increasing awareness and consumer protections to reach 5 million community solar households – and beyond.
