SolSmart Bronze designee DeKalb County, Georgia,  was interested in installing solar to cut costs. SolSmart helped the county identify the most feasible locations to maximize its investment and savings for local taxpayers. DeKalb County eventually installed over 7,000 solar panels on the Hickory Ridge Landfill.

I am proud of DeKalb’s track record in sustainability and excited that we are continuing to increase our capabilities. The results are showing that more of our citizens are interested in the benefits of solar energy.
