Solar for Multifamily Communities

California has been one of the leaders in expanding solar access to all communities regardless of location, income or ethnicity. Luminalt is involved in multifamily projects ranging from apartment buildings to condominiums to affordable housing communities throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. If there is a will, there is a way to go solar!

Solar for Renters

One of the driving forces of solar for renters in California has been the Solar on Multifamily Affordable Housing (SOMAH) program, which provides financial incentives for installing solar for people who rent in a multifamily property rather than own their homes.

Funded through greenhouse gas allowance auction proceeds, SOMAH has an overall target to install 300 megawatts of generating capacity by 2030, making solar energy accessible to low-income utility customers in California.

Solar for Condos and HOAs

Until recently, residents of condominium communities were often excluded from the benefits of home solar. With the advent of virtual net metering or the installations of separate systems on one roof, homeowners’ associations can now offer solar to their residents through a variety of ways. Luminalt can assist you with a technical consultation to determine the best way to structure your system for maximum benefit and simplicity.

The sleek design of the SunPower system and potential to include electric vehicle charging capacity within the solar panel array are particularly appealing for HOA members.
