These slides are from an interactive workshop, presented by the SunShot Solar Outreach Partnership, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on July 18, 2012. The workshop was designed to provide actionable information on overcoming local-level barriers to solar, addressing soft costs, and implementing a successful local solar program in areas including: 1) revising zoning codes and ordinances to allow for solar; 2) streamlining permitting processes to facilitate solar installations; 3) financing solar projects; and 4) installing solar on municipal and other community facilities.
This PowerPoint presentation from the 2011 ICMA Annual Conference in Milwaukee describes the role of local leaders in bringing solar power to their communities. In addition, it includes specific examples of their use in a variety of places and photos.
These slides were developed to train site assessors for the City and County of San Francisco. The presentation includes information on how to perform a site assessment for PV and SWH technologies, how to size a system, roof and electrical safety, and tools to use on a site assessment.
PG&E has developed a plan to install 500 MW of PV by the year 2015. The plan calls for 250 MW to be acquired through Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) and the other 250 MW to be purchased and owned by the utility. PG&E presented the plan at a public forum on April 27, 2009. A copy of the power point presentation is attached.
