The Solar Suburbs project developed a model for engaging an entire community so that residential rooftop solar adoption rates can be increased. With a focus on urban communities (suburbs), the project took a holistic approach in identifying and eliminating the barriers preventing higher rates of adoption of sustainable energy in a particular suburb.

The Solar Suburbs project was designed to contribute to the delivery of the NCES Sub Strategy I: Models of Community Energy. This included contributing to the priority initiative “Develop models of community energy based on Environmental Upgrade Agreement financing models”
