Ypsilanti is proud of our work in creating a solar friendly environment. In 2017 the City of Ypsilanti was given a SolSmart Gold designation from the Solar Foundation, which has highlighted our solar progress going from zero to over 1.2MW of solar power in the past 14 years. Being the first SolSmart award in Michigan helps us continue our mission of a 1000 solar roofs and bringing solar power to non-profits and low income people." Beth C Bashert, Mayor of Ypsilanti
