How the Community Power Accelerator Works

Discover the services, training, and resources available to Community Power Accelerator participants

The Community Power Accelerator Initiative aims to dramatically increase access to the funding and technical expertise necessary to deploy community solar that provides meaningful benefits to subscribers and their communities.

The U.S. Department of Energy's National Community Solar Partnership created the Community Power Accelerator, an online ecosystem that brings together lending institutions, philanthropic organizations, and existing or emerging community solar developers to support a more efficient and equitable distribution of the capital needed to develop community solar with meaningful benefits.

By providing training courses, guidance and technical assistance for predevelopment planning, an online platform to make connections, and more, the initiative is built to help you every step of the way from project conception to deployment.
