  • Integrated solar energy into Denver’s Climate Action Plan
  • Worked with nonprofit Grid Alternatives to make solar more accessible low-to-moderate income community members
  • Organized an active energy task force called “Energize” Denver that met regularly to evaluate building efficiency and energy programs and policies, including how to implement strategies laid out in Denver’s new Climate Action Plan
Denver is proud to be a national solar leader, and we look forward to building on our achievements as one of the nation’s first participants in the SolSmart program. Going solar — saving money, energy and the environment — in Denver should be accessible to every community and every household, and with this partnership we will help to make that a reality.
- Michael B. Hancock, Mayor
