Key Learnings from Utility-Owned Residential Geothermal and Solar REV Projects

This session explores how two REV demonstration projects, the Fruit Belt Neighborhood Solar project and the Long Island Geothermal project, each used a unique approach to bring renewable energy within financial reach of LMI and fixed income customers.

Both of these projects faced unexpected challenges that contributed to extensive lessons learned, many of which are transferrable to an array of other project types. Additionally, both projects demonstrate that a utility can use its combination of customer outreach skills, technical understanding, and project financing to achieve a financially viable customer-centric outcome.
