Fees, delays and non-standard practices associated with the local permitting process are adding unnecessary costs to solar energy in communities across America. Fortunately, local governments have the power to cut through the permitting red tape and become solar champions. This webinar will give you the tools you need to lower the cost of solar permitting in your hometown:
* Lawrence Berkeley National Lab introduces the solar permitting cost issue;
* Clean Power Finance shows you how to use the National Solar Permitting Database (NSPD), a FREE, community online tool that compiles solar permitting requirements around the nation in one single easy-to-use website;
* The Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) dives deeper into the nine permitting best practices for affordable solar;
* And Vote Solar introduces Project Permit, a new website that uses both of those valuable resources to grade cities' solar permitting practices and empower citizens like you to improve them.
