SparkNotes: November Resources & Opportunities

Checklists, tax credit sellers and buyers, and more!

Hello Spark community,

We’re back with another issue of SparkNotes, with some new and relevant links that we enjoyed and think developers will find helpful. As always, here’s the spreadsheet that many of you come here for.

Since our last issue, we had a blast meeting many of you in person at RE+ conferences this fall. We also co-authored a blog post for Build In Climate about the role of AI in our sector, which garnered over 1,000 views and was featured in several other publications. Spark also got a shoutout during a workshop at the Bezos Earth Fund!

Thank you to all of those that tested out SolarGPT during its private beta period. SolarGPT is a Q&A chatbot that has been trained on over 100 pieces of legislation, including the IRA and state incentive documents. We have been learning a lot through the kinds of questions that the community is asking on the platform about permitting, policies, incentives, and more — which informs Spark’s product roadmap.
