Project Description

Project / Program Description

Located in central Texas, the city of Waco has a poverty rate of 30%. While it’s the goal of NeighborWorks Waco to help families attain financial security through home ownership, we also provide affordable rental housing in 87 single-family homes that offer lease-purchase options (our "PEARLS & PRIDE Program). The 200 kW Waco Community Solar Farm is going to significantly reduce energy costs across those 87 LMI rental homes. By partnering with Green Mountain Energy, all 87 homes will be able to take advantage of an innovative “virtual net-metering” solution to get maximum credit for the energy production from the Waco Community Solar Farm.
