Gain clarity of appropriate regulations of solar land uses and how best practices in solar zoning are being applied through the nation.

Every community in the U.S. is seeing increasing pressure for solar energy development. The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that solar and wind energy will be the fastest growing source of U.S. electricity generation for at least the next two years, and likely for longer. This development will occur on private land and buildings currently under the jurisdiction of local governments, throughout every part of the nation. However, most zoning ordinances are silent about solar land uses, and decision-makers have little or no grounding in how solar development is similar to or different from other types of development. This topic provides context and clarity for appropriate regulation of solar land uses consistent with community goals, and how best practices in solar zoning are being applied through the nation. Like any form of development, solar development offers the community benefits and risks; understanding siting choices and site design options can help communities maximize benefits and minimize risks of this rapidly growing new form of development in our communities.

Learning Objectives

• You will be able to define solar resources and know how to quantify, measure, and map resources for development or protection purposes.

• You will be able to discuss different types of solar energy land uses and the differences between solar land uses that affect regulatory choices

• You will be able to identify the potential co-benefits of solar development and the siting and site design standards needed to capture co-benefits.

• You will be able to explain the real and perceived nuisances or risks associated with different types of solar development and the best practices for addressing them in regulation.
