Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched a $7 billion grant competition through President Biden’s Investing in America agenda to increase access to affordable, resilient, and clean solar energy for millions of low-income households. The Solar for All competition, which was created by the Inflation Reduction Act’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund, will award up to 60 grants to states, territories, Tribal governments, municipalities, and nonprofits to create and expand programs that provide financing and technical assistance, such as workforce development, to bring residential solar to low-income and disadvantaged communities. EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan announced the grant competition today with U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) in Waterbury, Vermont while touring a residential solar project.
EPA’s Solar for All competition is just the latest way that the Inflation Reduction Act is expanding access to solar for hard-working American families. Solar is the cheapest form of power available, so it helps lower energy costs while creating good-quality jobs, advancing environmental justice, and tackling the climate crisis.
