Solar Affordability Grants
Community Action Agency of Delaware County, Inc. (CAADC has partnered with Solarize Delco for a new Solar Savings Grant Program to make the savings of rooftop solar power installations available to low-income homeowners. Solarize Delco’s volunteers will provide homeowners with no pressure information and help them decide if solar is right for them. CAADC will provide eligibility screening for the Grant Program, as it does for its current Free Home Weatherization Program. Homeowners can contact either Solarize Delco (www.solarizedelco.org) or CAADC (www.caadc.org) to find out if they can participate in Delaware County’s transition to clean energy and lower their energy bills.
The Solar Savings Grant Program demonstrates that residents from every neighborhood in Delaware County can participate in the transition to clean energy. Participants can power their home with sunshine, nature’s clean, renewable energy, while also saving significant money on their family’s electric bills. It is critical that we support solar adoption in low-income communities and communities of color so that our most vulnerable residents can benefit from the savings, jobs, and resilience that result from installing solar on local rooftops.
