Solar Roadmap Goal Z4: Incorporate Solar Priorities into Comprehensive or Energy Action Plans focuses on integrating solar-friendly standards and guidelines into general plans, climate action plans as well as broader local and regional planning efforts.
As a jurisdiction’s most expansive statement of its policies and vision for the future, comprehensive plans are a powerful way to demonstrate a community’s commitment to sustained growth in the solar energy sector. Solar-friendly provisions in comprehensive plans or energy plans can help your community meet its clean energy goals cost-effectively and with broad public support. Furthermore, comprehensive plans can ensure that solar development in your community is socially responsible, aesthetically sensitive, and environmentally sound.
