The Path to Designation
If you are human, leave this field blank.
Designation Level: SolSmart Gold
Engaged the community in robust, on-going discussions around climate, energy, and sustainability plants
Created real-time monitoring system for citizens to view the amount of energy generated as well as the monetary and environmental benefits
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
Allowed solar by-right accessory use in all zones (so solar installations don’t require special permits or hearings)
Cross-trained both inspection and permitting staff on solar PV
Provided a streamlined permitting pathway for small PV systems
Stewardship and sustainability are community values in Cedar Hill. The SolSmart Gold designation is a recognition of our residents’ and business community’s continued environmental leadership.
