Bringing Solar to Renters
We fought for it, and now we’re bringing clean energy to the frontlines! The Solar on Multifamily Affordable Housing (SOMAH) program provides up to $100 million a year for solar on multifamily housing serving working class renters throughout California.
Renters need clean energy and our communities have been on the frontlines of pollution. Now we’re knocking down barriers to the benefits of the renewable energy economy. SOMAH is the largest investment in solar in the country, and the majority of bill savings and benefits go to tenants, all while prioritizing local green job hiring.
Project costs may be completely covered, meaning no cost to property owners or tenants. SOMAH is in high demand and APEN is here to help our communities get access!

The Solar on Multifamily Affordable Housing (SOMAH) program is uniquely designed to prioritize tenant benefits and opportunities. Unlike similar iterations of previous programs, at least fifty-one percent of the solar energy system must serve tenant energy needs, and property owners are expressly prohibited from recapturing tenant savings through increases in rent, even if the tenants are part of a utility allowance program as a proportion of total income.
