For those just starting down the road to solar, it’s a quick and easy way to learn more about your state’s renewable energy policy.

Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE)
Run by the N.C. Clean Energy Technology Center and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, DSIRE is a great starting point for finding the local, state and federal renewable energy initiatives—including solar—in your area. Search by city, state or ZIP code for the latest policy and incentive information to help guide your solar projects. Be sure to check out their Other Resources page for links to state, federal and international clean energy organization.
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative Resource Center
The DOE’s SunShot Initiative works to “make it faster, easier and more affordable for Americans to choose solar energy in their daily lives.” And that effort certainly applies to business leaders looking for more details about what it takes to go solar. Inside the Solar Energy Resource Center, you’ll find research and resources on solar basics, standards and codes, solar incentives, financing options, project planning, permitting and much more.
