  1. 1. Solar Energy Prospects (Residential) The link between solar and other technologies that reduce fossil fuel use + the way forward through Community Solar Programs Sustainability By Land & Sea March 17, 2017
  2. 2. 2Confidential and Proprietary—Do Not Distribute Overview • The link between residential solar and other technologies that reduce fossil fuel use • What a residential community solar program is, and what makes a program successful • Why communityprograms matter to all of us • The benefits of community programs to the Town / City
  3. 3. 3Confidential and Proprietary—Do Not Distribute The link between solar and Electric vehicles and heat pumps • One recent study* finds that around 50% of US consumers who have solar power or electric vehicles have both • Link to air source heat pumps is anecdotal in MA – although some reports† suggest that resistance to fuel switching may be dampening this phenomenon • Real life examples and intuitive reasoning suggest that EVs and heat pump technology are more attractive when electricity costs are reduced by solar PV. *2016 “Consumer Driven Technologies” study by the Smart Grid Consumer Collaborative † 2017 “The Perfect Solution, and Why it is not working” by Efficiency First California
  4. 4. 4Confidential and Proprietary—Do Not Distribute What is a Community Solar Program and why do they matter? • It’s not a community-SHARED solar program. • Basically it’s group purchasing of solar led by a local group of volunteers and one or more Solar Coaches • A communityeducation and outreach campaign increases solar adoption. • A communityprogram leverages what has worked elsewhere (marketing, social media, outreach mechanisms) • Also includes a community-benefit based on results.
  5. 5. 5Confidential and Proprietary—Do Not Distribute A community program demystifies & simplifies the process
  6. 6. 6Confidential and Proprietary—Do Not Distribute Community Program Benefits • Makes the community a clean energy leader within its borders and for neighboring communities • Usually comes with an award for reaching a kW goal – fosters increased adoption • Increases adoption of solar in subsequent years (finding from MassCEC Commonwealth II data comparing pre-Solarize adoption to post-Solarize adoption) • May increase adoption of other carbon reducing technologies • Above two benefits matter to all of us!
  7. 7. 7Confidential and Proprietary—Do Not Distribute Residential Solar Prospects in MA • DOER efforts to create a “long term sustainable solar incentive program” for MA will provide stability to the market for the next 1,600 MW of solar • MassCEC continue to support Solarize programs and from 2017 will couple clean heating technology options (including heat pumps) to the program • Heat pump technology continues to improve, and is almost a viable option as a sole-source heating system • Electric vehicle options continue to grow, and State incentives remain attractive • Overall solar prospects (and associated technologies to reduce fossil fuel use) remain good in MA
