More about SolSmart:
SolSmart is a national designation program recognizing cities, counties, and regional organizations that foster the development of mature local solar markets.
SolSmart is a national program led by the International City/County Management Association and The Solar Foundation, along with a team of partners with deep expertise in solar energy and local governments. Local governments have tremendous influence over the prospects for solar energy growth. Unnecessary paperwork, red tape, and other burdensome requirements increase costs and discourage solar companies from moving to the area. By streamlining these requirements and taking other steps to encourage solar development, communities become “open for solar business.” And since the solar industry is a leading source of American job creation, attracting solar investment in your community is a great way to promote economic development and new jobs.
SolSmart uses objective criteria to designate communities that have successfully met these goals. These communities receive designations of SolSmart Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Since the program launched in 2016, more than 380 cities, counties, and regional organizations in 41 states and the District of Columbia have achieved SolSmart designation, representing over 90 million people.
