Upcoming Webinar: Planning & Zoning Best Practices for Large-Scale Solar
Join us on Tuesday, October 15 at 2pm ET for our webinar titled, Planning and Zoning Best Practices for Large-scale Solar.
In this webinar, we will address best practices for planning and zoning for large-scale solar in your community. Learn about ways to provide maximum siting options for ground mount solar projects while preserving your community’s character and historic resources. Attendees will come to understand the development standards they can use to ensure large-scale development creates agricultural, vegetative, environmental, and water quality co-benefits. Finally, the webinar will provide a brief overview of SolSmart, a national designation and technical assistance program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. SolSmart promotes the use of best practices by local governments to ensure greater ease and affordability for residents and businesses to install and access solar energy. This webinar will count as training for SolSmart PZD-9 credit: Train planning staff on best practices in planning and zoning for solar PV.
