Massachusetts’ solar program, Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART), isn’t working for many. The so-called “SMART” program has not resulted in any noticeable number of low income solar projects. Thankfully, there is opportunity to fix this. The Department of Energy Resources is currently reviewing the program and has been directed to pay extra attention to low and moderate income solar access.
There are also two bills filed in the state legislature that, if passed, would expand access to solar by giving solar companies more flexibility in delivering savings to customers and carving out solar incentives for low income projects. Clean Water Action is working with the Green Justice Coalition to fight the laws and regulations that block low income communities and communities of color from accessing solar. Take action today to support solar for all of Massachusetts!
