Solar Power Considerations for Municipalities

Co-presented with Stantec


May 20, 2021
12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

State and federal governments are investing millions of dollars in America’s energy future through numerous complicated and quickly changing programs offering incentives and tax deductions to encourage energy development across the country.  In New York, the vast majority of that money is focused on developing solar power, and that creates revenue opportunities for landowners, such as municipalities, with vacant parcels, large rooftops, and open spaces that can be used to capture the sun. 

The way those projects are financed, developed, and ultimately benefit the landowner can be confusing, and comparing competing proposals can be impossible without an understanding of the incentives available and the economics driving them.  

Join Harter Secrest & Emery and Stantec for a webinar that will cover:

  • The basics of the solar development processes from legal and site development perspectives
  • Current and upcoming changes in state incentive programs
  • Important economic components of solar project proposals
  • Pros and cons when considering proposed solar projects in your municipality
