Upcoming Events
  • Mar 8 The Plan for Solar in Georgia: An Opportunity to Provide Your Input Georgia Tech, Emory and UGA have come together to develop a model solar zoning ordinance to provide county and city officials and other decision-makers in Georgia access to best practices and a common baseline from which to work. 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.
