Solar Market Pathways

ISC is National Coordinator for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Market Pathways project, which is a Solar Energy Technologies Office initiative to reduce solar costs across the U.S.

ISC is supporting 14 Solar Market Pathways awardees from across the country who are focusing on ways to reduce solar costs and expand support and financing for solar installations. Each team will bring together solar stakeholders to find ways to reduce barriers and expand local solar, which will result in tools and approaches that can be replicated in hundreds of U.S. communities.

“So today, no matter where you live or where you do business, solar is getting cheaper and is getting easier to use than before. And with more businesses and rural cooperatives and homes choosing solar, prices keep coming down, manufacturers keep getting more innovative, and more jobs are created.”

-President Barack Obama, May 2014.
