The Windham, Rutland, Bennington and Southern Windsor regional planning commissions are partnering with the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) to bring a SunShot Solar Workshop to Vermont. The workshop is designed to provide information on overcoming barriers to solar energy development and implementing a successful local solar program in your community. Southern Vermont municipal officials, businesses, and residents interested in learning more about solar development in the region are invited to attend and hear from national and local experts. The workshop will be interactive and will provide information on a variety of topics related to solar power including an overview of solar technology, the viability of solar energy in our region, regulatory issues, and examples of innovative financing options.
The workshop will include a panel of local leaders and experts from the Region who will lead a discussion and answer questions about their experiences with solar projects in Vermont. The event will be held Friday, September 6th from 8:30am to 12:30pm in the Green Mountain Room at the Inn
