Always happy to see the benefits of solar being made more equitable. Is there a roll out strategy National Grid is going to be using to educate and spread awareness of these opportunities, particularly any households who may have looked into solar programs previously and now just think they're simply not the target market?

Thanks Matt. Yes, we have a marketing plan that we submitted alongside our proposal. Our plan is to focus both on broad awareness through media channels and targeted outreach using email and bill inserts. I think there's absolutely an opportunity to work with customers that may have explored solar in the past, although the challenge will be to identify who those customers are. Our expectation is that we'll find customers that are primarily driven to reduce their bills, and are planning to work with our contact center and external agencies to identify and enroll these customers.

I'll warn you that it's a little technical, so I'm happy to answer any additional questions that you have.

Jayson, Great work. Making clean low cost Solar savings available to the most affected group by pollution is a perfect policy. We need more innovative programs like this. Do you have plans tp offer it in more areas?

Thanks Jim. I'm glad you asked. We are currently working with NYSERDA on a proposal in New York which will be ready soon. Regulators have also expressed interest in this for Rhode Island, and we're exploring opportunities there.
