The Resources Pages
When completed, the Process pages will open an interactive graphic that leads utility program designers to guidance and tools to help them launch successful, high-value community solar programs. The Decision Framework is a major product of the Community Solar Value Project. CSVP will share aspects of the Decision Framework prior to the full release planned for late 2016.
The Workshops page includes downloadable resources from our most recent workshops, which highlight our approach to working with utilities and their stakeholders to define and promote high-value community solar programs. Most have involved the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (our primary utility partner), members of a small Utility Forum, members of our project team, and other contributors. Topics include Program Design, Triple Play: Solar, Demand Response and Storage, and more. The Project will build on a total of five or more workshops, through 2017.
The Library page includes a frequently updated list of documents and resources — organized around key aspects of high-value community solar program design — that link to useful documents and related websites. These in include materials on community-solar market trends, best practices, case studies, strategic solar project design and procurement, value-added companion measure .
