Progress Towards Community Solar Access in Pennsylvania

Major news coming out of Pennsylvania: the House just passed House Bill 1842, transformative legislation that would enable access to community solar energy statewide! 🌞

Thanks to the tireless work of clean energy and environmental justice advocates, volunteers, and elected officials, this crucial bill clearing the House is a major milestone.

“We’re thrilled to share that a pivotal piece of legislation enabling statewide access to community solar has passed the Pennsylvania House. While this marks a transformative step in enabling widespread access to community solar statewide, the work is far from over,” said Elowyn Corby, Mid-Atlantic Regional Director at Vote Solar. “As we celebrate this achievement, our focus remains on advocating for the strongest and most equitable program possible, putting community needs and voices at the center of the conversation. We hope our Senators can continue this vital progress by further strengthening and  passing this piece of legislation, which represents an opportunity to empower communities and expand access to clean energy. By rallying behind this bill, we will build a more sustainable, more clean, and more equitable Pennsylvania for all Pennsylvanians.”
