WASHINGTON (WDVM) — DC Mayor Muriel Bowser announced a new collaboration that will help D.C.’s Solar for All and Solar Works programs reach more residents. The Mayor’s Office on Latino Affairs (MOLA) and the Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) will be collaborating to further outreach to the Latino community.
These two programs help low- to moderate-income houses receive access to solar power, furthering D.C.’s transition to clean energy. A release said that participants can receive solar power even if they do not have solar panels and even if they do not own a home.
“These programs not only move DC closer to our climate and clean energy goals, they give DC residents a fair shot. I’m grateful for the Mayor’s Office on Latino Affairs for stepping up to get more residents connected to Solar for All, and we encourage any resident who is interested in saving on their electric bills to apply,” Mayor Bowser said in a press release.
The new collaboration will help conduct outreach and education in Spanish. MOLA will also be giving assistance at the Frank D. Reeves Municipal Center to eligible residents.
