NRECA’s Achieving Cooperative Community Equitable Solar Sources project, a three-year initiative funded by the Department of Energy, aims to bring the benefits of solar power into low- and moderate-income communities. NRECA is partnering with seven electric cooperatives across the country to deploy solar projects that help LMI consumer-members with the intent to share the lessons they learn with the wider co-op network.
For an in-depth look at ACCESS, we’re joined by Keith Dennis, NRECA’s vice president for consumer member engagement, Deb Roepke, the ACCESS project’s principal investigator and technical adviser, and Nick Shumaker of Oklahoma Electric Cooperative, one of the ACCESS partner co-ops.
