The Solar in Your Community Challenge aims to spur the development of new and innovative financial and business models that serve low- and moderate-income communities. The Challenge offers $5 million in cash prizes and technical assistance to teams across the country to develop projects or programs that expand solar access to underserved groups, while proving that these business models can be widely replicated and adopted by similar groups.
