The city of Jordan, Minnesota, has shown a long-term commitment to expanding access to solar energy in the community, earning Bronze designation in 2018, Silver designation in 2021, and most recently SolSmart Gold designation in 2023. Jordan has updated their permitting, inspection, and zoning, provided public incentives and pathways to solar installation such as PACE financing and a Solarize campaign, and more.

The City of Jordan is committed to the efficient use of our residents' resources, mindful of our impact on the environment, and focused on Government that works at the speed of commerce. The "Silver" designation from SolSmart touches on all three of those values. On behalf of the City, I'm very proud of what this says about our City leaders and staff, but especially our residents, who have embraced these values from day one.
- Mayor of Jordan, Mike Franklin
