The Department of Energy’s Solar America Communities Outreach Partnership is focused on reducing barriers to solar adoption and increasing installed capacity by decreasing project execution time, revising zoning and building codes to allow for solar installations, and increasing access to financing options. This session examines the role that local governments can play in addressing challenges and obstacles related to solar, drawing on Milwaukee’s experience as a Solar America City.
