This project was conducted at the request of Worcester's Energy Efficiency and Conservation Program to evaluate proposed solar energy projects for public facilities and explore other issues related to their development. Research focused on the economic feasibility and overall desirability of such projects undertaken by local governments based on the current market conditions, regulatory constraints, and policy incentives for solar energy. An analysis of these factors supports the conclusion that public investment in solar energy at this time is a fiscally and socially responsible way for the City of Worcester to act on its commitment to renewable energy and sustainable government.
