On Tuesday, November 30 at 2:00 p.m. ET, tune in to the Equitable Solar Deployment in SolSmart Communities webinar, co-hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC).
Learn about the SolSmart designation program and its commitment to equity through guest speakers and a roundtable discussion. SolSmart participants from a variety of communities will share their strategies for equitable solar deployment.
SolSmart is a SETO-funded national designation program led by IREC and the International City/County Management Association that helps local governments make it faster, easier, and more affordable for residents and businesses to go solar. Over 400 communities have been designated as “open for solar business” by SolSmart to date, and DOE has set the goal to achieve 60 new SolSmart designees by March 2022.
