As part of the SunShot Solar Outreach Partnership, IREC will be holding a free, half-day workshop to provide technical assistance to local government officials in Westchester County, NY and surrounding communities who are interested in learning about ways to improve their permitting processes for solar facilities.
IREC will cover the three primary components of the solar permitting process—the pre-application stage, application submittal, and facility inspection. For each of these steps, IREC will offer suggestions on how to improve and streamline the permitting process in ways that benefit the permitting authority, as well as solar installers and their customers.
After the workshop, IREC would be available on an on-going basis for one-on-one assistance to city and county officials interested in pursuing changes to their solar permitting polices and processes. IREC’s goal is to help communities to determine their particular needs and interests, and identify the changes necessary to meet them.
Solar initiatives that are currently under development are likely to result in a dramatic increase in the number of solar installations in Westchester municipalities. This workshop, and the related support services, can help your municipality prepare for the expected increase in permit requests.
