Buena Vista Charter Township, Michigan earned SolSmart Bronze in 2024 by embracing a number of initiatives designed to make solar energy easier to access and more affordable for residents. That included posting materials about solar financial resources and incentives, standardizing permitting and inspection practices, and more!

It is our hope that this designation will help attract solar developers to our municipality as a means of economic development, especially with the recent growth in solar energy the state of Michigan has been experiencing. Our community's commitment to clean energy generation and sustainability was also a driving force towards this achievement.
