As the very first county in the U.S. to earn SolSmart Platinum designation, Dane County, Wisconsin undertook innovative actions to support solar energy for all residents within its jurisdiction. That included work to connect local governments within the county with solar resources (including the SolSmart program), providing solar financing options for residents, supported the installation of solar on multifamily housing within the community, worked with a regional organization on solar incentives and resources, installed solar on county-owned facilities, and much more.
