This post is an excerpt from the DCSEU FY 2019 Annual Report.
Woodmont Crossing is a housing apartment complex owned by NHP Properties located in Southeast DC. Woodmont is just one of multiple affordable housing complexes managed by NHP. Through Solar for All, the DCSEU partnered with NEO, a local solar developer, to install solar photovoltaic systems on five roofs throughout the complex. The entire electrical output from the solar panels will be used to provide credits on Pepco bills to DOEE-designated low-income households. Residents in Woodmont were given the opportunity to apply for
credits through DOEE and were given priority access to the credits from the project. If qualified, DOEE will apply credits to offset at least 50% of residents’ electric bills. The credits are provided at no cost to the residents and could save them over $500 annually.
Woodmont was the first Solar for All project in the entire program to reach completion. With the completion of the project, NHP and NEO are bringing solar to more low-income communities, making the resource more accessible for those who could benefit the most.
