These Solar 101 workshops have helped build the regional solar market by targeting the reduction of non-hardware "soft" costs for solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.  The workshops were produced by Lakes Region Community College, with support from the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative Rooftop Solar Challenge II, in partnership with the New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning and Clean Energy States Alliance.  Thank you to all who helped coordinate and participated!
