2. Conduct market research to understand energy practices and needs in low income communities
3. Develop a business model for the prospective entrepreneurial initiative
4. Create an entrepreneurial packet to explain the business model and associated responsibilities
5. Evaluate and adapt the business model and entrepreneurial packet through pilot programs
