Over the past year, The American Planning Association, working with the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), the National Association of Regional Councils (NARC), and alongside ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability on the SunShot Solar Outreach Partnership, an initiative of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), has developed a set of briefing papers covering the following subjects.

Solar Community Engagement Strategies for Planners

Solar Mapping

Integrating Solar Energy into Local Plans

Integrating Solar Energy into Local Development Regulations

Balancing Solar Energy Use with Potential Competing Interests

Recycling Land for Solar Energy Development

Energy Law Wisconsin was privileged to be part of the team that provided input on the briefing paper “Balancing Solar Energy Use with Competing Interests” and was part of an APA webinar last fall on this topic.

The APA website has a wealth of resources on solar planning and other APA research.  We encourage you to visit the website and take a look around.
