Green, sustainable living can protect people’s pocketbooks, and also improve their health and well-being. Did you know the average household pays nearly $170 each month in energy costs? Further, the typical homeowner saves more than $1,000 a year on electricity by installing roof-top solar panels.

That's why NeighborWorks America is focused on increasing the access of low-income families to solar power. Through a new partnership, NeighborWorks America and GRID Alternatives are awarding nearly $200,000 in grants, training and technical assistance to nonprofits offering solar power for low-income communities. Solar power has just gotten more affordable for many hardworking families. Increasing access to more efficient power for low-income communities, and lowering utility costs, is a step in the right direction. A step towards equity and inclusion.
