Planning for Utility Scale Solar Energy Facilities

The growing demand for utility-scale solar generation and storage facilities coupled with federal and state tax incentives have accelerated the energy industry’s efforts to bring facilities online as quickly as possible. Localities are struggling to properly determine how to evaluate utility-scale solar facility applications, update their land-use regulations, and achieve positive benefits for hosting these clean energy facilities. Planners will need to amend comprehensive (general) plans and ordinances to bring some structure, consistency, and transparency to the land-use permit evaluation process. Learn how to classify these facilities, analyze their land-use impacts, and make recommendations for how to evaluate and mitigate those impacts. This webcast is hosted by the APA Virginia Chapter
