Solar Panels at Georgetown University Spur Neighborhood Equity

We are thrilled to announce that we have partnered with Root + Branch to initiate the largest project in our Neighborhood Solar Equity program with Georgetown University

Together, we are set to install 1.1 mW on Georgetown’s campus, making it one of the largest on site solar arrays in Washington, D.C. Through an innovative project model the system will produce renewable energy for the University and amplify the benefits of solar for the District of Columbia.

We created the innovative project model to serve the energy needs of the University, while also ensuring the surrounding neighborhoods benefit from the renewable energy.

Profits from the system have been dedicated by the partners toward reinvestment in DC neighborhoods, including through a “Community Investment Fund” which, in collaboration with Georgetown University, will support clean energy projects in low-income areas of the District.
