  • Created an online permitting checklist, increasing transparency for community members and solar installers.
  • Reviewed local zoning codes and identified restrictions that intentionally or unintentionally prohibit solar PV development
Aurora's comprehensive plan contains a sustainability component, and because renewable energy systems on facilities save energy and money and retain jobs, we are committed to making solar installation easy in Aurora.
