Renewable Energy - Solar

Local zoning and permitting for solar installations
Duluth is a participating beta community in Minnesota's Solar Challenge program to implement best practices in permitting and zoning. The Minnesota Solar Challenge is providing free technical assistance to communities to:

  • Removing barriers in local permitting process, both building and electric
  • Understanding and adopting reasonable permit fees charged to solar installations
  • Ensuring that land use regulations, including comprehensive plan language and zoning, treats solar energy installations fairly and consistently with other similar land uses
