“With a national record 20 communities now designated ‘SolSmart’, Colorado municipalities are working to ensure their citizens continue to benefit from solar energy,” said Mike Kruger, President & CEO of Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association. “SolSmart is helping Colorado municipalities streamline permitting processes, unlock local finance options, and implement other best practices to make solar more affordable and accessible.”

SolSmart helped to align our permitting process with our goals for 100 percent renewable electricity community wide by 2035. It streamlined work with our contractors and helped make our Solarize Summit residential PV program a success with over 20 systems installed in 2019.
