Bay Area Solar Photovoltaic Ordinance Toolkit, a project of the Bay Area Regional Collaborative* and the Bay Area Regional Energy Network (BayREN)**, provides guidance for Bay Area cities and counties that are interested in requiring solar photovoltaic, or PV, systems on new single-family and low-rise multifamily residential units. The Bay Area Solar PV Ordinance template allows local government staff to prepare the ordinance for adoption with minimal modifications.
