Groundswell works with community leaders to connect families with community solar and the energy bill savings that comes with it in DC and Maryland. These community solar programs — including the DC Department of Energy and Environment's (DOEE) Solar for All program — have been hugely successful over the past year in providing much-needed financial relief to struggling households.
From community resiliency hubs in Baltimore; to reducing energy burdens in rural Georgia; to building community solar across Washington DC, Illinois, and Maryland — Groundswell loves our partners, communities, and team.
In August, Groundswell, along with our friends at Pepco, the Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County, the Montgomery County Green Bank, Sunlight General Capital, SunCatch Energy, and local officials celebrated the installation of solar panels at Paddington Square Apartments in Silver Spring, Maryland.
On June 24 and 29, the Justice40 Accelerator will host information sessions on how the Justice40 Accelerator can support frontline organizations who would like to tap into resources, tools and funds available through the Biden-Harris Administration Justice40 policy initiative.
In May, a new behind-the-meter solar installation at Ark Refuge Ministries in LaGrange, Georgia, began to provide clean, locally generated energy thanks to a collaboration between Ark Refuge Ministries, Solar Tyme USA, The Solutions Project, and Groundswell.
Groundswell’s focus has always been and will continue to be the people we serve. Coming from a community that has been left behind, I have always wanted to be able to properly respect and uplift my community, and Art has given me the opportunity to do so.
