Multifamily Solar Power

In 2009, EAH Housing installed a 900-kilowatt photovoltaic project at Crescent Park in Richmond—the largest multifamily affordable solar project in the US. This challenging retrofit was financed through a combination of California Solar Initiative (CSI) rebates, renewable energy tax credits, low-income housing tax credits, and utility cost savings. The project will provide 60% to 80% of Crescent Park’s electricity and displace 14,000 tons of CO2 emiss
