Northwest Solar Communities develops standardized tools to make the process of going solar simple, fast, and cost effective. As residents and businesses increasingly choose solar, jurisdictions and utilities are searching for new systems to meet customer demand for permits and interconnection. Northwest Solar Communities has convened a team of jurisdictions, utilities, and industry partners 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. Jurisdictions and utilities will adopt best practices that enable them to serve customers efficiently while driving down costs, making solar a cost-effective clean energy solution for all.
Jurisdictions in Oregon and Washington are invited to apply for Mini-Grants to fund a local project to increase deployment of rooftop solar in their community. Download the Application and FAQ. Applications Due April 27, 2015.
Jurisdictions in Oregon and Washington are invited to begin adopting best practices to gain recognition as a Northwest Solar Community!
