Fight Energy Poverty with Solar

Solar energy is a powerful tool in the fight against poverty, and it can become a powerful tool for community action agencies. In partnership with community action agencies across the country, RREAL has been delivering solar energy to low-income communities.

We are forging a new, nationally relevant model of low-income energy assistance that is fiscally responsible and environmentally appropriate. Come learn about model programs that are successfully integrating solar energy into the energy assistance and weatherization community. Come learn about efforts to fight energy poverty with solar power!
