Solar Resources for Universities and Local Governments

NREL offers resources to universities and local governments seeking to go solar. In support of the U.S. Department of Energy's SunShot Initiative, these resources aim to increase the deployment of midscale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at universities, engage stakeholders to develop deployment solutions, and empower decision makers.

NREL publishes reports, fact sheets, presentations, and other publications aimed to help universities and local governments implement solar projects.

While the resources to date have been developed for universities, NREL plans to provide a solar training program for city staff in Fiscal Year 2018. The program will help city staff understand solar site assessment, project economics, and purchasing. NREL expects this program to launch in Fall 2017.
