More than 100 cities, counties, and small towns all across America are designated SolSmart Gold, Silver, or Bronze.
Lincoln, Nebraska, currently a SolSmart Bronze Designee, has the goal of achieving Gold. See Lincoln Environmental Action Plan 2017-2018.
Since the SolSmart program, administered by The Solar Foundation, launched in April 2016, it has been providing no-cost technical assistance to help communities improve the business climate for solar energy.
SolSmart is using this “100 communities” milestone as an opportunity for local governments to celebrate what they’ve achieved to date and to invite others to join them.
Check out SolSmart’s map and you’ll see designees are all across the country. They range from major metro areas like New York City, Atlanta, and Chicago; to small towns like Red Wing, Minnesota and Pinecrest, Florida; to rural counties like Inyo County, California and Delta County, Colorado.
SolSmart works with local governments to develop the tools they already have to make it faster, easier, and more affordable to go solar — no matter the size of the community or where they are located.
