  • American Planning Association - Solar FAQs
    The American Planning Association has compiled case studies to address common questions that jurisdictions have about solar zoning.

  • American Planning Association - Planning & Zoning for Solar Energy Info Packet
    The Essential Info Packet created by the American Planning Association provides a collection of sample ordinances designed to address solar energy system installation, solar access, and solar siting.
