Solar Install JB House 1.jpegThe Oregon Department of Energy, together with our partners Energy Trust of Oregon and Bonneville Environmental Foundation, have been awarded an $86.6 Million Solar for All Grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The award was announced on April 22, 2024

Through a competitive process, The U.S. EPA awarded 60 Solar for All grants totaling $7 billion to states, territories, Tribal governments, municipalities, and nonprofits to expand the number of low-income and disadvantaged communities primed for residential solar investment—enabling millions of low-income households to access affordable, resilient, and clean solar energy.

The U.S. EPA was looking to fund programs that accomplish three main objectives:  
  • Reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants.
  • Deliver benefits to greenhouse gas- and air pollution-reducing projects to American communities, particularly low-income and disadvantaged communities.
  • Mobilize financing and private capital to stimulate additional deployment of greenhouse gas- and air pollution-reducing projects.
The Oregon Solar For All Coalition intends to use the first year of the program for additional planning. Read the narrative submitted for this application for additional details. Please note our proposal is subject to change based on potential negotiations with the ​​U.S. EPA.​
