Solar America Cities Podcast: Solar in San Antonio

Liza Meyer, a Special Projects Manager with the City of San Antonio, discusses San Antonio's work as one of the Department of Energy's 25 Solar America Cities. San Antonio was named as a Solar America City in 2008 and the city worked with local non-profits to increase financing options for homeowners, as well as with CPS Energy, its municipal utility, on large scale solar installations. In 2011, San Antonio and its project partners were named as one of 22 teams awarded under DOE’s Rooftop Solar Challenge, a program for local and regional teams to drive significant improvements in market conditions for rooftop solar photovoltaics.  This podcast explores the city’s successes, challenges, and lessons learned.
