New Solar Tools
Over the past three years, Solar Market Pathways, a U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office initiative, has supported 14 innovative solar projects around the country with the goal of increasing solar energy adoption by reducing the soft costs associated with solar. These projects have generated new online tools and how-to guides to help customers, developers, local governments, universities, and other stakeholders make well-informed decisions about solar energy.
From all the financial calculators, rooftop solar potential tools, manuals, checklists, and software, we’ve compiled some of the best resources to help those who want to learn more about community solar, energy resilience, new markets, solar for colleges and universities, and multi-family housing.
