Story

A partnership for solar outreach to local governments.
Introduction
A partnership between ICMA, ICLEI, and DOE to increase solar energy adoption in local communities. 

The Solar Outreach Partnership (SolarOPs) is designed to help accelerate solar energy adoption on the local level by providing timely and actionable information to local governments. Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative, SolarOPs achieves its goals through a mix of educational workshops, peer-to-peer sharing opportunities, research-based reports, and online resources.

 To perform the work of SolarOPs, DOE selected teams led by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability USA. These organizations and their teams help local governments take a comprehensive approach to solar energy deployment by:

 Conducting outreach and sharing best practices for increasing solar energy use with thousands of local governments across the nation

Working in partnership with industry experts and national membership associations to enable local governments across the United States to expand their local solar markets

Providing information in relevant areas, such as solar policies and regulations, financial incentives, workforce training, and utility and community engagement.
