Community solar providers and building owners are grappling with how owners can distribute the financial benefits of community or rooftop solar to residents that reside in master-metered buildings and do not have an individual electricity bill. HUD has surveyed states, which are in the process of implementing different benefit delivery models as part of their community solar offerings, including direct cash payments, and providing additional building amenities like a security guard or shuttle bus. In a new memo, HUD provides a list of benefits under review by programs across the country and an assessment of whether the benefit is considered “income” for the purpose of determining family rent or eligibility for HUD assistance.
