Addressing Soft Costs and Barriers (Growing Sustainable Communities Conference, Dubuque, IA)
Solar Powering Your Community Workshop
These slides are from an interactive workshop, presented by the SunShot Solar Outreach Partnership, at the Growing Sustainable Communities Conference in Dubuque, IA on October 2, 2012.
The workshop was designed to provide actionable information on overcoming local-level barriers to solar, addressing soft costs, and implementing a successful local solar program in areas 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.
