Program Overview:

WDC Solar, Inc., is a minority-owned and operated solar Engineering, Construction, and Procurement (EPC) company located in Ward ‘8’ of Washington, D.C. Ward ‘8’ is a thriving community known as Anacostia in the Southeast section of America’s Capital City. Since 2009, WDC Solar has been bringing solar power to low-income homes, businesses, not-profit organizations, communities of faith, and governments in the National Capital Region.

WDC Solar’s mission is to create livable wage renewable energy jobs for local electricians, roofers, solar technicians, and engineers. Its efforts are providing opportunities for all residents living in the District of Columbia to qualify for free solar energy. The company installs both Residential PV Systems and larger Commercial Systems for schools, churches, and government buildings. The organization also has a very robust and inclusive technical training and certification program open to qualified and desiring residents of the District. This allows citizens to obtain transferable, relevant, and employable jobs skills which includes hands-on experiences in residential and larger-scale commercial and government facilities installations.

WDC Solar, Inc. was created with the intention of providing access to solar energy to all socioeconomic classes in Washington, D.C.

The program is now called “Solar For All”, offering free solar systems to low-income residents who meet certain income requirements. It has expanded its in-house solar program to include free solar to all residents living in the District of Columbia.
