Northwest Solar Communities develops standardized tools to make the process of going solar simple, fast, and cost effective for customers and the jurisdictions and utilities that serve them. Rooftop solar installations in Oregon and Washington provide an increasing number of jobs and a growing share of clean energy. As residents and businesses increasingly choose solar, jurisdictions and utilities are searching for new systems to meet customer demand for permits and interconnection. Responding to this challenge, Northwest Solar Communities has convened a team of jurisdictions, utilities, industry partners, and citizen groups to develop and share solar best practices.
Northwest Solar Communities envisions a future where rooftop solar installations are standardized across a broad swath of the Pacific Northwest. Adopting consistent rules and processes across jurisdictions and utilities will create a more uniform market for rooftop solar and drive down costs. Where feasible, jurisdictions and utilities will share online permitting and interconnection solutions, enabling them to serve customers consistently and efficiently. As we share solutions, we can facilitate the cost-effective adoption of rooftop solar energy.
