"In 2021 the City, in collaboration with SolSmart, reevaluated its development code, permitting process, and solar outreach efforts. Through this process, the City was awarded the designation of a SolSmart Silver community. This designation continues to affirm City staff and elected officials' dedication to a more ecologically friendly community." City of Laramie Website
