Despite rapid growth in solar energy markets across the country, solar is still often limited by local barriers in zoning, permitting and installation. Local government ‘soft costs’ –the non-hardware and administrative costs of solar—and ‘red tape’ ultimately raise the price of solar energy systems, which is passed on to residents and businesses.   

In an effort to become more solar-friendly, many counties are seeking to improve and streamline their local solar policies and processes. Join us for this webinar to dive into best practice examples of strategies and solutions currently being implemented in counties across the country. Participants will also learn more about the SolSmart program as an available resource for counties to gain no-cost technical assistance in removing local barriers to solar and an opportunity to receive high-profile, national recognition.
