On July 13, 2021, the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at UVA and the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy (DMME) will email an invitation to participate in a statewide, online solar survey to the planning director (or equivalent management role) of every county and independent city in Virginia.
The purpose of the Virginia Solar Survey is to collect data and information related to each local government’s experience, readiness, efforts, and needs related to solar policy and solar development. A summary report will be issued, and the information will be used to track solar trends across the state and to prioritize the development of future support, resources, and programming. VACo assisted Weldon Cooper and DMME in the drafting of the survey and will provide a link to the summary report once it is available.
For more on the survey, contact Elizabeth Marshall, Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at UVA: firstname.lastname@example.org
