This Solar for Apartments workshop is aimed at educating multifamily property owners and operators about the opportunity to go solar by utilizing the Virtual Net Metering tariff to provide solar access to tenants and reduce energy costs.

Virtual Net Metering is a utility arrangement offered by PG&E, that allows for a multi-metered, multi-tenant property to install a single solar electric system which can be shared by multiple onsite tenant and common load utility accounts, resulting in direct, on-bill savings.

Distinct sub-tariffs are available for the market-rate and low-income sectors. *Please note: This session will more heavily focus on solar for market-rate apartment buildings.

In these workshops, we will discuss the steps involved in going solar with Virtual Net Metering, site considerations, available financing products, technical assistance resources, and more. Presented by Alexandra Patey, Project Manager, Advisory Services, Center for Sustainable Energy. Workshops are free to EBRHA members. Refreshments will be served. Register below:
