In this webinar, we addressed best practices for planning and zoning for large-scale solar in your community. The webinar covers ways to provide maximum siting options for ground mount solar projects while preserving your community’s character and historic resources. Learn about the development standards that can be used to ensure large-scale development creates agricultural, vegetative, environmental, and water quality co-benefits. Specific speakers cover local perspectives and concerns, pollinator-friendly solar, and decommissioning and end of system management.
