This report published by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) explores how state energy agencies (SEAs) are currently working with community-based organizations (CBOs) on equitable solar policy, and the barriers to successfully implement these policies. The report is based on a survey of SEAs conducted by CESA in conjunction with Energy Trust of Oregon and Kim Wolske of the University of Chicago.

More and more SEAs are making equitable access to solar a priority when developing programs and policies. One of the best ways to ensure marginalized communities are represented in the development of solar programs is for SEAs to actively involve CBOs from these communities.
