Why Municipalities Should Consider a Utility-Scale Solar Ordinance


A webinar specifically developed for leaders of Environmental Advisory Councils, Pennsylvania Bird Towns, and Pennsylvania Audubon Chapters, the program will feature a short PowerPoint and links to resources assembled by the Pennsylvania Audubon Council’s Renewable Energy Committee.  Participants will be empowered to use the PowerPoint and linked resources in subsequent presentations to officials at the municipal government level in the communities they serve.



Carolyn Grayshaw, Director of Education for WeConservePA; Heidi Shiver, President of Bird Town Pennsylvania; and Leigh Altadonna, President of the Pennsylvania Audubon Council will explain the objectives of the webinar and introduce the panel of presenters. Tom Kuehl, Allegheny Plateau Audubon Society and Judy Stepenaskie, Wyncote Audubon Society, will preview the PowerPoint and provide an overview of resources featured in this webinar. Laura Jackson, Juniata Valley Audubon Society, and Sue Murawski, Presque Isle Audubon Society will provide a brief walkthrough of the Commonwealth Court decision concerning the Brookview Solar Project in Adams County. This decision was strongly based on upholding the local ordinance. Steve Nelson, Director of Planning and Government Relations, will provide a brief “Civics 101” lesson on the limits of authority of state government and the importance of the authority vested at the municipal level.
