Solar Policy Environment: Pittsburgh
This document outlines the policies in place affecting solar deployment.
In this project, Pittsburgh plans to build on its reputation as a national leader in green practices. Its Solar America Cities project will develop a distributed approach to adoption of solar energy technologies. Pittsburgh’s partnership includes universities, non-profit organizations, and business, labor and foundation communities. The city plans to transform the solar energy market and stimulate early adoption of solar technology, to show that solar technology works in a northern city.
The City intends to work with programs already included in Pennsylvania’s state policy and budget projections over the next two years. The city will encourage adoption of solar energy by residential and small-scale commercial users to demonstrate that the technology works and will lower energy bills.
