To earn SolSmart Bronze designation, the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission (located in and around Madison, Wisconsin) worked hard to connect local governments with resources to expand solar access in their communities, increased access to information about solar energy for residents, and incorporated solar PV into regional planning documents, among other achievements!

When communities adopt SolSmart practices, it becomes faster, easier, and more affordable to install solar energy systems...Teamwork makes the dream work, which is why CARPC, the Dane County Office of Energy and Climate Change and communities have been working together to make local renewable energy available throughout the region.
