Solar Ready Northwest Indiana

The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) is partnering with the National Association of Regional Councils (NARC), the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC), Meister Consultants Group, the Council of State Governments, and eight regional councils on the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative Rooftop Solar Challenge. Through this award, NIRPC is striving to implement the following strategies throughout Northwest Indiana:

Together, with support from our local govern­ments, NIRPC will achieve more streamlined and standardized solar practices, resulting in measurable improvement to Northwest Indiana’s solar market conditions, a policy identified in NIRPC’s 2040 Comprehensive Regional Plan. Through
the greater Solar Ready II project, NARC and its partners will ultimately achieve measurable improvements in solar market conditions, will engage 40,000 residents nationwide through online consumer
market research panels, and will provide new solar market access for ten million people across the U.S.
