At New Columbia Solar, we’re passionate about supporting our community. We aim to make a positive impact, first and foremost, through our own work and our partnerships to create a cleaner, and more equitable, world. We also sponsor local nonprofit and charity events, organize company-wide volunteer days, and supply our business operations with a preference for small, locally-owned businesses.
A quality, built-to-last roof is essential to supporting the weight of a solar system; our exclusive partnership with Fortis Warranty helps ensure that your roof is solar-ready.

DC Solar for All Program
Solar for All is an initiative that aims to provide clean energy to over 100,000 low-to-moderate income families in the District. The program was launched by the District Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE) in 2017 and has been operated by the DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) since 2019. As the solar developer with the largest share of Solar for All projects, we are happy to work with customers to have their properties considered to lease for a Solar for All installation.
