CSD Community Solar Pilot Workshops

The California Department of Community Services and Development (CSD) is hosting a series of workshops in Fresno, Los Angeles, and Sacramento, promoting awareness for their Community Solar Pilot Project. CSD intends to make up to $5 million available to fund community solar projects that benefit local, low-income constituencies. The purpose of these workshops is to:

Build an awareness of Community Solar; Inform interested parties of the opportunity to respond to an upcoming Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA); and Foster partnerships among prospective bidders.

These workshops will take place during the first two weeks of November. Please see schedule below and select which workshop you would like to attend in the registration section.

Workshop Information

CSD is inviting individuals from many pertinent areas of community solar, including solar project developers, local governments, community organizations, utility companies, affordable housing developers, investors, and others. By bringing these individuals and groups together, we hope to encourage partnerships that can lead to innovative and impactful project proposals.

In addition to presenting general project information, these workshops will include roundtable discussions on key topic areas, such as building partnerships, financing, and community development strategies.
