More than 50 local government officials attended a free, day-long workshop in Mooresville, North Carolina on July 30, and learned about solar zoning codes and ways to improve their solar permitting processes. The Centralina Council of Governments hosted the workshop.
As part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Solar Outreach Partnership, ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability U.S.A. and IREC present a series of three webinars on solar permitting and inspection. In the third and final webinar of the series, August 27, 2-3p ET, we’ll take a step back and examine how communities can change their permitting processes, with a particular focus on voluntary regional and statewide collaborations.
To benefit permitting authorities and installers, and ultimately energy consumers who invest in solar, IREC just released the first Model Inspection Checklist for Rooftop Photovoltaic (PV) Systems.
