Solar for All Program Automation with PowerClerk®

PowerClerk and Solar for All

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Solar for All initiative aims to dramatically expand the benefits of solar to traditionally underserved groups. Clean Power Research has teamed with the non-profit Center for Sustainable Energy® to assist Solar for All awardees that need program design and operations assistance in addition to an online platform.

PowerClerk is the ideal solution for agencies running Solar for All programs in-house or outsourcing design and operations to a third-party.

Why PowerClerk?

PowerClerk evolution: from solar incentives to DERs and beyond

PowerClerk has processed rebate and incentive applications since 2006, beginning with state-level programs in New York, California, Pennsylvania and beyond. Today, PowerClerk is used by more than 65 utilities and agencies across two countries and has processed more solar rebate applications than any other online system.

PowerClerk’s evolution into a feature-rich, general-purpose cloud software platform for energy program automation has made it the preferred solution for utilities and agencies around the U.S. These organizations handle a range of programs in PowerClerk, including home efficiency and electrification rebates, DER interconnection, new and upgraded electric service, and more. PowerClerk reliably scales from large programs with thousands of applications in the largest states and at the largest IOUs, to small programs such as those offered by co-ops.

Support for in-house and outsourced programs

PowerClerk is generally used by state or municipal agencies in one of two ways:

  • Programs managed in-house – PowerClerk’s “no-code” environment, extensive learning resources (including a certification program), and configuration and support services from Clean Power Research make it an ideal platform for organizations that want to develop and manage programs in-house. Many agencies automate multiple program types with PowerClerk.
  • Outsourced programs – Most of the top energy program implementers and operators in the U.S., including Center for Sustainable Energy, are familiar with and use PowerClerk for various rebate and incentive programs.
