On Tuesday, Obama announced the ‘Clean Energy Savings For All’ Initiative which intends to increase access to solar energy and promote energy efficiency across the country, particularly in low- and moderate-income families.

The Clean Energy Savings For All Initiative is a cross-government partnership between the Departments of Energy (DOE), Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Agriculture (USDA), Health and Human Services (HHS), Veteran’s Affairs (VA), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The “new catalytic goal” will aim to bring 1 GW of solar to low- and moderate-income families by 2020, a 10-fold increase and expansion of an initial target set by the President in his Climate Action Plan to install 100 MW of renewable energy on federally-assisted affordable housing by 2020.
