Memorandum
Attached for your review and consideration is Amendment No. 2 to the City's contract with Clean Energy Coalition to support the City's efforts to advance Ann Arbor's Climate Action Plan. Amendment No. 2 will allow for continued programs for "a2energy" financing, increased solar development in the community, and related resources for residents and businesses to achieve efficient and renewable energy services.

Under the continued scope of work, CEC is organizing a "solar aggregation" program available to all residents in Ann Arbor and modeled after successful national examples, which have achieved 20% or better reduced costs for solar. This will aid City Council's approved support to make Ann Arbor a "Solar Ready" community (Resolution R-16-259).

A third-party model for financing PACE energy efficiency funding is to be developed with local/area banks, to improve capacity and project processing. The Ann Arbor Climate Partnership, the community's stakeholder working group monitoring CAP implementation will launch a new website for a 2016-17 campaign and will establish clear metrics for community engagement including residential sign-up and City Ward-level meetings for residents to become better aware of Climate and Energy programs in Ann Arbor.
