    Is Your County Solar Ready? Strategies for Removing Local Barriers to Solar Energy

    Despite rapid growth in solar energy markets across the country, solar development is still often limited by local barriers in zoning, permitting and financing. Local soft costs 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 interactive workshop 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 and receive high-profile national recognition.
