AB 693:

Multifamily Affordable Housing Solar Program

Author: Assemblymember Susan Eggman

AB 693 will create a new program, called Solar CARE, that dedicates $100 million per year to low-income tenants of multifamily affordable housing projects for on-site solar installations. Low-income communities are often last to benefit from green technologies, in addition to promoting local jobs, renewable energy, and cleaner air for the state. AB 693 helps lower energy bills for low-income families with free solar energy.

About California Environmental Voters

California Environmental Voters (formerly the California League of Conservation Voters) believes the climate crisis is here and this moment requires transformative change. California has the policy solutions to stop climate change but lacks the political will to do it at the rate and scale that’s necessary. EnviroVoters exists to build the political power to solve the climate crisis, advance justice, and create a roadmap for global action. We organize voters, elect and train candidates, and hold lawmakers accountable for bold policy change. We won’t stop until we have resilient, healthy, thriving communities, and a democracy and economy that is just and sustainable for all.
