Faith Communities Helping to Create Community Solar Gardens

Ecology and Environment

MSI PI Gabriel Chan (professor, Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy) is quoted in a recent story from National Public Radio (NPR) about the work of faith communities to partner with developers building solar gardens in low-income neighborhoods. Churches, temples, and mosques are working with the solar-energy industry to install solar panels; community members can then subscribe to the system and reduce their energy costs. The story can be found on the NPR website: Powered by Faith, Religious Groups Emerge as a Conduit for a Just Solar Boom.

Professor Chan uses MSI to model air pollution impacts of California’s climate-change policies.
