Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) to host Webinar on Solar for Resident Owned Communities on July 21

Solar for Resident-Owned Manufactured Homes Communities

Wednesday, July 21, 2-3pm ET

Manufactured homes comprise over 6 percent of America’s housing stock and represent an even larger share of housing for low- and moderate-income households. In April, the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) released a report exploring the opportunities and challenges for bringing the benefits of solar to manufactured housing residents in fourteen states. In May, CESA hosted a webinar overview of the report and addressed questions from the audience. CESA has established a learning network for stakeholders interested in exploring the topic of using solar to power manufactured homes.

On July 21st, CESA will host a webinar for its Solar for Manufactured Homes Learning Network focused on solar for resident-owned communities (ROCs). ROCs are manufactured home communities that are structured as nonprofit cooperatives. Panelists for this webinar will share more information about ROCs, how solar can be used to benefit them, and successful examples of solar projects that serve ROCs.
