Community solar grant program
Elizabeth is identified by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection as an environmental justice community. The city and surrounding area suffer from climate-related concerns that severely impact its diverse, underserved, urban neighborhoods.
It is anticipated that the next round of community solar funding will become available in late 2023. Learn more about community solar here.
