HUD's Renew300 initiative aims to help federally assisted housing save money through the installation of onsite or community-based renewable energy technology. Federally assisted housing includes HUD's rental housing portfolio (Public Housing, Multifamily Assisted), USDA's Rural Development Multifamily Programs, and rental housing supported through the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC).
The 300 MW target aims to make use of millions of federally subsidized roofs with on-site or community generation potential. Supported renewable energy technologies include Solar PV and Solar thermal, wind, geothermal, small biomass, combined heat and power, and small hydro projects.
