Solar Project Portal Webinar: Site Assessments for Local Governments

November 28, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Understanding solar site opportunities starts with collecting site information and utility data. This information is important when seeking project proposals from developers and is the basis for conducting site assessments to identify the most suitable sites.

On Wednesday November 28, 2018, the U.S. EPA will host a webinar for the Local Government Solar Project Portal, which will cover the key steps for assessing potential solar project sites; describe how to pre-screen the potential sites on your initial list; and explain how to conduct a more in-depth site evaluation of promising locations. It will feature guest speakers from three municipalities who will provide real-world examples of the steps they took as well as lessons learned from their site assessment experiences.
