住宅PV采用者的收入趋势:对家庭级收入估计分析

劳伦斯伯克利国家切赛国家实验室

居民光伏(PV)市场在过去十年中迅速扩大,但存在关于在收入群体中发生增长的问题。先前的研究已经调查了这个问题,但通常受到狭窄地理研究区域,现在日期分析时间框架或PV-Adopter收入的粗估计的限制。与此同时,近年来近年来出现了一系列新的计划和倡议,以及商业模式和产品设计的创新,目的是使太阳能更易获得,并且可负担得起的人口。然而,许多努力在没有关于近期住宅PV采用者的收入特征的强大潜在信息的情况下进行。

这项工作旨在建立关于美国住宅太阳能采用者中收入趋势的基本事实信息,重点是低收入和中等收入(LMI)家庭。The analysis is unique in its relatively extensive coverage of the U.S. solar market, relying on Berkeley Lab’s Tracking the Sun dataset, which contains project-level data for the vast majority of all residential PV systems in the country (a subset of which are ultimately included in the analysis sample). This analysis is also unique in its use of household-level income estimates that provide a more-precise characterization of PV-adopter incomes than in most prior studies.

This report was developed for a project, led by the Clean Energy States Alliance and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office, to assist five states plus the District of Columbia to develop and implement strategies for increasing access of solar PV among LMI residents.
