Solar Project Portal Webinar: Site Assessments for Local Governments

Wednesday, November 28, 2018
1:00 PM-2:00 PM EDT

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 hosted a webinar for the Local Government Solar Project Portal, which covered the key steps for assessing potential solar project sites; described how to pre-screen the potential sites on your initial list; and explained how to conduct a more in-depth site evaluation of promising locations. It featured guest speakers from three municipalities who provided real-world examples of the steps they took as well as lessons learned from their site assessment experiences.
