“Expanding the availability of solar energy for Baltimore homeowners – especially in underserved communities – will bring tremendous benefits to our city. In addition to helping homeowners lower their electric bills and reduce Baltimore’s carbon footprint, this program will create opportunities for city residents to get hands-on job training in the solar energy industry.”

"I was first introduced to the HBCU CEI when I was a student at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, North Carolina. In October 2018, I attended a Roundtable Discussion on the clean energy initiative, where I participated in a panel discussion with students attending JCSU and surrounding HBCUs in North and South Carolina. I was inspired by the mission of the CEI for a number of reasons, including the potential to assist me in securing employment in the clean energy industry."
