GPP Webinar: The Solar Roadmap—Navigating the Evolving Solar Energy Market

Wednesday, March 20, 2013
1:00-2:00 p.m. (EDT)
EPA's Green Power Partnership (GPP) and State & Local Climate and Energy Program

On Wednesday, March 20, 2013, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. (EDT), EPA's GPP and State & Local Climate and Energy Branch hosted a webinar titled "The Solar Roadmap: Navigating the Evolving Solar Energy Market." Navigating the rapidly evolving solar energy market can be a challenge and charting the right course for a community requires both local and national knowledge. The Solar Roadmap Exit platform and its free resources organize global best practices and make them easily accessible locally for government agencies, regional organizations, businesses, and electric utilities. Through a tailored Solar Roadmap, interested communities can join others from across the country that are transforming their regional environments and economies with clean energy solutions. This webinar reviewed success stories and opportunities for local and state governments to make significant progress toward their environmental and renewable energy goals using the Solar Roadmap platform.

Webinar participants learned about:

  • The vision, experiences, and approach to using this unique tool and set of resources with a brief demo and case study.
  • Available Solar Roadmap resources, including guidance on permitting and inspection, planning and zoning, interconnection, financing tools, and market development.
  • How solar power can boost local job creation, lower electricity costs, and attract local investments.
