The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council is a member of the Solar Ready II (SRII) team that is participating in the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative Rooftop Solar Challenge (RSCII). Through SRII and RSCII, SWFRPC will implement solar energy best management practices (BMPs) that will lead to more streamlined and standardized solar processes in addition to making solar energy more cost competitive in their region. For more information about SRII please visit NARC.org/solarready.

TBRPC RegionTBRPC encompasses four counties in the Tampa Bay area: Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco and Pinellas Counties. As a member of the Solar Ready II team, TBRPC plans to transform the solar energy market in Tampa Bay Florida by eliminating the current market barriers, reducing balance of system costs, and making solar energy a real solution to the U.S. energy crisis. Through its SRII project, TBRPC will build upon and complement the State of Florida Statewide Energy Resiliency and Assurance Plan project (SERAP). This plan develops strategies and implementation methods so that Florida can provide analysis concerning the state’s energy policy practices and usage.
