Clean Energy Initiative

The HBCU CDAC Clean Energy Initiative was built on the simple premise to replicate the successful model of a community workforce investment program focusing on the opportunities in the Clean Energy Industry, and solar energy specifically. It was implemented in the City of Baltimore, Maryland and anchored at Morgan State University (MSU). MSU, is one of the nation’s 105 Historically Black Colleges and Universities. MSU installed  solar panels on 33 homes owned by  low income families  and provided workforce training to  local  residents  Additionally, MSU  connected community homeowners and  business  owners to leaders on their campus to help capture the many benefits of using clean energy.
