How solar projects can transform low-income communities
By Sarah Kennedy ~ Yale Climate Connections
In North Philadelphia, one organization is bringing the transformative power of solar energy to low-income neighborhoods.
This past spring, Serenity Soular helped raise more than $37,000 from more than 300 donors to finance a solar installation at a community arts center. The group has also completed projects at a Baptist church and a community outreach center.
Frank Ortiz of Serenity Soular says that clean energy can help people in poor neighborhoods.
