Solstice Initiative together with our partners at PUSH Buffalo are co-developing a community solar project intended to benefit low-income and traditionally excluded residents of the Buffalo community.

To develop the project we will form a Community Advisory Board (CAB), made up of residents and local community leaders who will be tasked with guiding the parameters of the project.

Members of the CAB will have the opportunity to decide on a myriad of project design elements including, project siting, the ownership model, workforce development opportunities, incorporating grid resiliency improvements through storage, curating the community space through beautification and more.

Building off the learnings from our first pilot project in Boston, we hope this project will solidify our unique participatory community solar development model that centers the needs and wants of frontline communities.
