An ICAST solar installation project is making headway, even amid the pandemic. The project is a collaboration between ICAST, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Santa Fe County Housing Authority (SFCHA) and TBL Fund through their EPC program. The solar install spans three properties, covering nearly 200 individual units. All three properties are income-qualified, with tenants ranging from low-income families to the elderly, disabled individuals, and veterans.
The tenants are thrilled about the solar install as is SFCHA. The EPC program allows them to receive property improvements at no cost to them. Other upgrades include high efficiency furnaces, low-flow toilets, showerheads and aerators, LED lighting, air and duct sealing and ventilation upgrades.
