WDC Solar, Inc., is a minority-owned and operated solar installation Engineering, Construction and Procurement (EPC) company located in Ward 8 of Washington DC, a thriving community known as Anacostia. Since 2009, WDC Solar has been bringing solar power to low-income homes and businesses in the Washington DC area.
WDC Solar, Inc. was created with the intention of providing access to solar energy to all socioeconomic classes in Washington, D.C. Ten years ago, Mark Davis, President and Founder of WDC Solar, Inc. created a low-income solar program in conjunction with the District of Columbia Department of Energy and Environment. The program called Solar For All, offers free solar systems to low-income residents who meet certain income requirements. The SFA program allows low income residents to obtain a state of the art solar system at no cost to the homeowner. The program guarantees the homeowner a 50% reduction on their monthly utility bill. The money that low income families save, can then be used for other household expenses such as food, medical bills and transportation. The program has been a tremendous success. WDC Solar has installed solar systems to over 500 homes in the District of Columbia.
