The Solar Introduction in English Avenue project involves installing solar panels on a multi-unit, low-income, senior citizen, affordable housing property located in Atlanta’s Historic Westside English Avenue Community. By installing solar panels on this property, the low-income tenants will benefit from utility cost savings associated with accessing energy, as high utility costs are often the basis for so many financially disadvantaged seniors and families losing their homes or being evicted from their apartments.
In an effort to ensure a stable living standard for its tenants, Hagar Civilization Missionary, Inc., (Hagar CTM) the property owner and nonprofit affordable housing developer, absorbs the tenants costs for utilities. In addition to motivating other developers, providing long-term cost-savings for low-income minority families, the Solar Introduction in English Avenue project will serve as an instructional/training site for a select group of students from Booker T. Washington High School.
Thanks to a grant from Greenbuild, via the Legacy Project, installing solar panels on this property ensures its place as a durable, sustainable and ideal model for future development.
