Linn County Solar Dashboard
In Response to Economic Challenges
To address the economic challenges faced by residents, small businesses, and nonprofits in Linn County, the Linn County Sustainability Department has partnered with the Linn County GIS team to create the Linn County Solar Dashboard. This innovative tool aims to help Linn County residents access available funding options to install solar systems on their homes, small businesses, or nonprofits. The dashboard not only provides information on local solar installers but also outlines the process for going solar and maps the existing solar systems installed in Linn County.
Official Release and Webinar Event
The Linn County Solar Dashboard will be officially released during a webinar event on December 19. Hosted by the Linn County Sustainability & Resiliency Committee, the webinar titled “Linn County Inflation Reduction Act Webinar: Empowering Homes, Businesses, and Nonprofits with Solar Opportunities” is designed to show community members how to access funding through the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and utilize the power of solar energy to mitigate inflation-related challenges in terms of energy and utility bills.
