Solar Plus Team
The Solar Plus project brings together agencies and organizations representing utilities, environmental justice, renewable energy advocates, government, and the solar industry. Project members collaborate to develop and implement strategies that enhance solar adoption as well as to build energy equity and resiliency.
The Solar Plus initiative is powered by the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO). Through State Energy Strategies (SES), project teams will benefit states at two phases in the solar energy planning process: during the creation of solar deployment targets and identification of strategies to achieve these goals, and then during the implementation of these strategies. Solar Plus is one of 17 teams participating in this program.
