Local Power Community Solar: info session

When: Nov 17, 2022 6:30-7:30 pm

Where: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/local-power-community-solar-info-session-on-how-to-subscribe-tickets-453994448617

Switch your electric account to Local Power, a brand new community solar program that lets you cut your energy costs every month. You'll start getting your power from large-scale solar energy systems on commercial buildings in the neighborhood. That means you can go solar without installing a system on your roof - the savings guaranteed, and it's free to sign-up! Help us create our local green power system. You'll learn where the systems are being installed and we'll discuss opportunities for investment and even ownership in a program that benefits the whole community, including training and jobs for our low-income populations. Join us for an info session on Nov. 17 @6:30pm to learn more! Learn more at www.reticenter.org/communitysolar

All Hearings are cancelled and HPD will continue to pay the subsidy until a final determination is made. If your client has a recertification that is due and they can complete the recertification without putting their health at risk or risking exposure to coronavirus, they should mail, email or fax the recertification.  HPD is trying to hold clients harmless during this crisis.  They are also talking to HUD to get extensions and waivers to help protect tenants.
