WEBINAR: Promoting Solar Energy Use Through Local Plans

Recording of a September 20, 2013 webinar. 

Join the Solar Outreach Partnership for the second webinar in the Promoting Solar Energy Use Through Local Planning series. While the first webinar in the series explained why communities should be planning for solar energy, this webinar takes a closer look at how communities can incorporate references to solar energy use as well as specific solar-related goals, policies, and actions into local plan documents.

Erin Musiol, AICP, Senior Research Associate with the American Planning Association, will focus on the relationships among different types of plans, the reasons for including information about solar energy in different plans and plan sections, and the types of information to consider including in these plans. Musiol will be joined by Steve Abraham, AICP, Planning Manager for the Pinal County, Arizona, and Nathan Geisler, Energy Programs Associate with the City of Ann Arbor, Michigan, who will personalize the conversation by describing their communities’ respective experiences integrating solar into a comprehensive plan and a functional plan.
