To ensure transparency and neutrality in developing the model ordinance, we have scheduled a series of public meetings to give all interested parties a voice in the process. We welcome your attendance at any and all of the meetings, where we will solicit your input on the draft ordinance, and discuss the opportunities, concerns, and envisioned outcomes. These meetings will also introduce the Renewable Energy Technical Assistance Program (ReTAP) a USDA funded program at the University of Georgia which provides technical assistance and education to individuals, businesses, and communities interested in deploying solar and other renewable energy projects.
