In June, DOE announced the availability of more than $27M to help cities and counties deploy more solar through a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). Known as the SunShot Initiative, the goal is to make solar energy cost competitive with fossil fuels within the decade. Letters of Intent (LOI) are due July 29th; applications are due August 31st.
DOE is offering a series of four webinars explaining the overall FOA (Rooftop Solar Challenge), and how to complete Attachment 1. The webinars will be recorded and posted to DOE’s website.
The webinar series begins Wednesday, June 29th, and will run successively for the next three Wednesdays from 2-3 pm ET. Here’s the schedule:
June 29: (FOA Overview);
July 6 (Interconnection/Permitting Processes Overview);
July 13 (Interconnection/net metering)
July 20 (Financing Options and Planning and Zoning Overview)
Details about each of these four webinars are in IREC’s online calendar. All webinars are free, but you must register to attend.
