The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has created a $15 million program to help communities develop multi-year solar plans to install solar electricity for homes and businesses.

As part of the Department's SunShot Initiative, the Solar Market Pathways program aims to help communities develop solar financing mechanisms and public-private partnerships to launch solar deployment initiatives, such as shared solar programs.

The DOE says the program is intended to enable multi-year strategies that spur significant solar deployment, drive down solar soft costs, support local economic development efforts and address the potential challenges arising from increased solar penetration on the electrical grid.
