Solar Policy Environment: Madison

This document outlines the policies in place affecting solar deployment.

The City of Madison’s Solar America Cities project, “MadiSUN”, will coordinate and galvanize substantial local and state resources to showcase how a U.S. Midwest city can dramatically increase the use of solar energy. Madison’s approach includes a comprehensive review of zoning and land use planning, streamlining the permitting processes, development of the local workforce, and assessment of city-owned buildings for solar PV and thermal applications. The City of Madison objective is to make Madison a green capital city and a national leader in energy efficiency and renewable energy.
