How It Works
By deploying targeted financial tools and technical assistance designed to unlock new solar energy projects that face barriers due to region-specific challenges, the Appalachian Solar Finance Fund (SFF) promotes economic recovery and diversification in Central Appalachian communities directly impacted by the decline in the region’s coal economy.
The SFF’s targeted blend of financing tools can be used to:
- roof repairs
- engineering and design
- energy auditing
- grant writing
- permitting and inspection
- utility interconnection fees
- and more!
- unlock additional solar deployment in the region
- build a trained local solar workforce
