California low-income multifamily solar program moves forward

At the end of October, CPUC put forth a proposed decision which set the form of the Solar on Multifamily Affordable Housing (SOMAH) program as the vehicle for the implementation of AB 693, and earlier this week California Solar Energy Industries Association (CALSEIA) and other parties issued comments on the proposed design.

SOMAH has different funding rules and eligibility requirements than MASH and will obtain its funding from the share of greenhouse gas allowance auction proceeds from the state’s three large investor-owned utilities. The program will not only provide $100 million annually in incentives for the deployment of solar on low-income apartment buildings, but will also ensure that renters in those buildings are the primary recipients of net metering credits for such generation.
