Community Solar Pilot Workshops in California

The California Department of Community Services and Development (CSD) is hosting a series of workshops in Fresno, Los Angeles, and Sacramento, promoting awareness for their Community Solar Pilot Project. CSD intends to make up to $5 million available to fund community solar projects that benefit local, low-income constituencies. The purpose of these workshops is to:

  • Build an awareness of Community Solar;
  • Inform interested parties of the opportunity to respond to an upcoming Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA); and
  • Foster partnerships among prospective bidders.

See below for workshop times and locations during the first two weeks of November. You can register for the workshops here.

As a valued stakeholder in California, we wanted to share information with you on these three upcoming workshops. Please feel free to share with people in your network who would be interested in participating in this important effort to increase strong proposals and create collaborative projects. For more information on community solar, please refer to this fact sheet.

Workshop Information

CSD is inviting individuals from many pertinent areas of community solar, including solar project developers, local governments, community organizations, utility companies, affordable housing developers, investors, and others. By bringing these individuals and groups together, we hope to encourage partnerships that can lead to innovative and impactful project proposals. In addition to presenting general project information, these workshops will include roundtable discussions on key topic areas, such as building partnerships, financing, and community development strategies.
