  • Adopted the most recent codes from the International Code Council including Appendix U regarding solar ready construction
  • Shared the KC Solar Map on the community’s solar landing page
  • Installed solar on local facilities, including a 25kW array on the water treatment plant
Our city has worked hard to make solar more affordable and easier for our residents and small businesses to install. We have seen firsthand how our actions have led to considerable social and economic benefits locally. The solar panels that have been installed at our water treatment plant have served to partially offset the annual utility costs at this facility. Solar gives us another tool to help manage operational costs. SolSmart presents cities and counties nationwide with an opportunity to realize similar benefits and I encourage every community to join Gladstone and get involved.
