Supporting Access to Health Care: Resilient Emergency Power for Florida Community Health Centers

A Report Just Released from the Florida Association of Community Health Centers, Direct Relief, and the Clean Energy Group.

In 2022, the Florida Association of Community Health Centers (FACHC) set out to develop a better understanding of backup power capabilities at Health Centers and how Health Centers could be supported in expanding these capabilities. The primary goals of the project include assessing which Health Center sites have emergency power sources, the types of emergency power currently utilized by Health Centers, and building awareness of available options to increase resiliency, including but not limited to resilient power—solar photovoltaics paired with battery storage (solar+storage). This project builds on FACHC’s longstanding commitment to support Health Center capacity for continuity of operations during emergencies and disasters, as well as requirements set forth by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) (CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule, 2019) and HRSA Expectations.
