Terms and Conditions
The National Community Solar Partnership (NCSP) is a coalition of community solar stakeholders working to expand access to affordable community solar, led by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office and supported by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). NCSP has developed the Community Power Accelerator Initiative, which will leverage technical assistance, strategic partnerships, and an online Community Power Accelerator platform to build a pipeline of credit-ready community solar projects and connect developers, investors, and philanthropists to support more equitable deployment of community solar and more equitable capital. This form is intended to gather information about community solar developers, investors, and philanthropic organizations who wish to join the network, and about community solar projects that need project financing and other investment. The goal of collecting this data from inaugural network participants is to pre-populate the Community Power Accelerator in advance of the platform's full public launch in January 2023. Having a pre-populated network of organizations and projects will attract newcomers to join so that the Network continues to grow. We greatly appreciate your participation in the Network and providing this information to help make the Community Power Accelerator a success by attracting new developers and new capital to community solar. The data collected in this form will be used by DOE, NREL, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the University of New Hampshire to pre-populate the Community Power Accelerator with information from inaugural members that provide developer, investor, and philanthropic organizations overview and operational information, and about community solar projects in need of investment. The Community Power Accelerator home page will be public and will not contain any information from this form. The rest of the platform will be available only to registered users once they sign in. Most information from this form will be available to registered users of the Network. Please note that masked emails will be created to protect the privacy of all users. Some information (noted on the question) will be private and thus will only used by the Network platform administrators. Data collected will be moved into the Community Power Accelerator platform and retained for the duration of the project by DOE and NREL.
