This project presents a case study of the New Bedford Solar Initiative in order to develop guidelines for other Massachusetts municipalities. The first phase of this project was to research solar energy and the solar industry, specifically in Massachusetts. The second phase was to interview municipality energy directors, solar developers, and state offices. The third phase was to develop a set of guidelines that will provide an overview for municipalities interested in generating a renewable energy program, specifically in solar power. The focus is to provide insight to a municipality members on common methods, while guiding them towards potential ways to expedite the process. The goal is to provide a source for municipalities to reference, should they intend to procure solar power.
