Laws in Order cover

This report from the Regulatory Assistance Project and Clean Air Task Force, with support from the U.S. Department of Energy, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Consensus Building Institute, catalogues state renewable energy siting policies across the United States, profiling all 50 states plus Puerto Rico. 

It identifies which government entity or entities in each state or territory have the jurisdictional authority to make siting and permitting decisions about large scale wind and solar projects. The report also covers established timelines for siting and permitting processes, requirements for public involvement in those processes, and the availability of permitting guides and model ordinances designed to assist local jurisdictions.
