ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability U.S.A. and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Inc. (IREC) will present the final two parts of their three-part webinar series on Solar Permitting & Inspection on June 26 and August 27. As part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Solar Outreach Partnership, the series reviews the components of rooftop solar permitting processes and shares best practices and tools for improving them.

The webinars are targeted for municipal permit review staff and inspectors, but they are useful to anyone with an interest in improving the permitting processes in communities.
