This webinar will introduce solar developers, environmental consulting firms, data companies, and software developers to a new open-source GIS siting tool. Developed by the Center for Advanced Energy Studies' Energy Policy Institute with support from the Department of Energy SunShot Initiative, the PVMapper project is designed to allow utility-scale solar developers to compare multiple potential sites with a focus on reducing balance of system (BOS) soft costs. These soft costs include variables such as proximity to power infrastructure, endangered species habitat, and potential social implications. This introduction will provide an advanced look at the software, which is currently in beta testing with a target launch date of June 2014.
