This quick guide is intended to point FHWA Division Offices and State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) to the relevant FHWA requirements.
The Vermont Agency of Transportation Solar Development Plan provides an overview for the agency, potential partners, stakeholders, and the general public of why the agency should invest in solar photovoltaics (PV), and the process of developing solar PV projects on VTrans properties and highway right-of-way (ROW).
This report and related documents, data products, and web tool are meant to be used as a resource for State DOTs and other interested parties in the selection of right-of-way (ROW) sites with potential for solar photovoltaic (PV) development.
This is a guidebook based on Oregon Department of Transportation for other states pursuing development of solar photovoltaic systems in the highway right-of-way.
The U.S. Department of Transportation provides case studies on states that are installing solar panels in the right-of-way.
State Departments of Transportation (SDOTs) are increasingly exploring the use of highway right-of-way (ROW) to accommodate renewable energy technologies. This paper provides information on potential business models, state rules, regulations, and policies, and example projects for energy generation in the ROW.
The Free Energy Solar Highway Program research project identified best practices nationally and determined the financial feasibility of generating solar power on New Mexico DOT property at the lowest possible cost.
