Expanding Transportation’s Role in the Clean Energy Transition

Wednesday, May 22, 2024

Right-of-way renewable energy resources available on SSTI website

The goal of SSTI’s recently created Renewable Energy in the Right of Way resource page is to facilitate the sharing of technical documents related to siting renewable energy — principally solar — projects in the highway ROW. It is a living repository of technical documents for state DOTs and others to use as examples as they develop their own ROW renewable energy projects.

“War on cars” (or bicycles) isn’t new
