Description (excerpt):

Clean Energy Group offers two small-grant programs to help overcome the challenges to developing solar and battery storage projects at critical community-serving facilities.

  • The Technical Assistance Fund (TAF) helps environmental justice communities gain access to early-stage project development funding, expert guidance and advisory support, and the technical resources needed to develop community- led solar and energy storage projects that can serve as local resilience hubs during times of crisis.
  • The Resilient Power Leadership Initiative (RPLI) provides community-based organizations with funding support to build the internal capacity to advance resilient power solutions.

From 2014 through 2022, CEG’s resilient power funding programs have resulted in over $1.3 million in funding to 112 community-based organizations, affordable housing providers, municipalities, and first responders across 26 states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico.

In 2022, CEG’s resilient power funding programs provided $200,000 to 23 organizations across 11 states, with 43% of funds allocated to BIPOC-led organizations.

This report outlines the impacts of CEG’s 2022 grantmaking. The report covers the programs’ projects, partnerships, and lessons learned.
