Through a statewide grant partnership with Broward County and others around the state, Alachua County, in partnership with the cities of Gainesville and Newberry, will be receiving approximately $290,000 as part of a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative Rooftop Solar Challenge II (aka Go Solar) competitive award.
This award will be used to develop and implement an online permitting process for small scale residential and commercial rooftop solar installations around the State. Once developed, the system will be available for use by any of the County’s municipalities that choose to participate.
