The Institute for Local Self-Reliance hosted a webinar exploring a February 2020 report on Equitable Community Solar.

In the webinar, host Jonathan Welle, of Cleveland Owns, walks through the report with Timothy DenHerder-Thomas, of Cooperative Energy Futures. The two co-authored the report, along with contributing authors John Farrell and Maria McCoy of the Institute for Local Self Reliance (and the contributions of many others). The report offers guidance for communities working to establish solar programs that promote racial and economic equity. The webinar took place on March 10th.
