On Friday, September 26th, plan to attend the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs’ FREE Green Building Symposium and Expo at the Washington Convention Center, 801 Mount Vernon Place NW. 

Find the full schedule of events here.


Make your way to room T#3 to take part in two afternoon educational workshops on solar permitting, featuring information presented by DDOE solar expert Emil King and DCRA solar inspector Keith Winston.

The 1:30pm thru 2:45pm session – Solar Permitting Guidelines Part I – “Streamlining Solar Permitting” will focus on understanding the key elements necessary in plans and specifications to ensure solar permit applications are processed smoothly and successfully in the District.

The 3:00pm thru 4:14pm session – Solar Permitting Guidelines Part II – “Supercharging Solar” will focus on improving the coordination and reaching for best practices amongst the solar community in DC – a particularly crucial need in the face of rapidly increasing solar installs in the region. This session is envisioned as a more free-flowing exchange of ideas and information in order to draw on the experience of the attendees while addressing some of the challenges as solar installations increase in DC. 

These sessions are highly recommended for residents submitting solar permitting applications to DCRA and for anyone interested in supporting the broader, faster adoption of solar in DC.
