Solar Moonshot Program Grantee

Be a Helping Hand
“Be a Helping Hand is a minority-led, affordable housing development nonprofit in Nashville, TN. We are excited to provide solar + battery systems to our affordable housing, bolstering support for energy justice and our Solar Equity Program. The impacts of climate change as well as the pandemic have exacerbated existing inequities in the communities that we serve, highlighting the urgent need for the equitable transition to renewable energy. Our Solar Equity Program empowers marginalized communities in Nashville by providing pivotal affordable housing equipped with resilient solar power, as well as solar installation training and job opportunities essential for an inclusive transition to renewable energy, a prerequisite for the health and survival of humanity and a sustainable future amid our changing climate.”
