Solar Powering Your Community Workshop Coming to a City Near You!

The SunShot Solar Outreach Partnership is hosting a workshop in a city near you!  These free half-day workshops, in cities around the Southeast and Midwest, will provide context specific information to stimulate action and strengthen networks around solar development on the local-level.  

The Solar Outreach Partnership (SolarOPs) is designed to help accelerate solar energy adoption on the local level by providing timely and actionable information to local governments. Solar Powering Your Community: A Guide for Local Governments serves as the foundation for these outreach efforts.

The workshops will focus on areas where local governments can take actionable steps to move the solar market forward, including:  1) revising zoning codes and ordinances to allow for solar; 2) streamlining permitting processes to facilitate solar installations; 3) financing solar projects; and 4) installing solar on municipal and other community facilities. Case study examples will highlight successful practices and lessons learned from communities that completed solar projects. 

To see a full list of workshops and to register, visit the Program Centers Events Calendar.  We hope to see you there!



Throughout large portions of North America exists the potential for the "cleanest, greenest energy known to mankind" hydro power. The reuse of the existing dams and powerhouses across our land could replace on the coal burning power plants we are now using. Please support hydro power.
