How the Community Power Accelerator Works

Here's how to join the accelerator and access the services, trainings, and resources available

The Community Power Accelerator is helping increase access to the funding and technical expertise necessary to deploy community solar across the country.

By providing training courses, guidance, and technical assistance for pre-development planning, as well as an online platform to make connections, the Accelerator is built to help developers and community-based organizations step of the way from project conception to deployment.

To reach our goal of ensuring 5 million households have access to community solar power, we need to rapidly deploy community solar across the country - and the Community Power Accelerator is designed to help achieve this goal by helping you:

  • Gain Expertise: Designed for new, small developers and community-based organizations, our Learning Lab offers online training to get you ready to start a new community solar project or program.

  • Plan Your Projects: We provide free technical assistance services to help you complete the CreditReady Checklist.

  • Focus on Equity: We advise you on incorporating meaningful benefits for communities into your project plan and recruit equity-focused capital providers and philanthropic organizations.

  • Get Projects Funded: Our online platform provides a place to shop your credit-ready projects around to verified project developers, capital providers, and philanthropic organizations.
