CSE is driving shared-solar adoption for multifamily buildings

Accelerating the transition to a sustainable world powered by clean energy

The Center for Sustainable Energy has partnered with a number of organizations to offer a solar program that is focused on multi-family properties. Because multi-family solar projects are often considered complex, this program was created to simplify the process and to offer resources and assistance in making a smart solar decision.
This program has the funding and support of the US Department of Energy through the SolarMarket Pathways program and is a collaboration between the Center for Sustainable Energy, CalSEIA, IREC and EnergySage. The EnergySage Solar Marketplace will be used to help property owners gather and compare solar quotes with ease to make going solar simple.
