“With a national record 20 communities now designated ‘SolSmart’, Colorado municipalities are working to ensure their citizens continue to benefit from solar energy,” said Mike Kruger, President & CEO of Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association. “SolSmart is helping Colorado municipalities streamline permitting processes, unlock local finance options, and implement other best practices to make solar more affordable and accessible.”

This certification reflects the attention that both the LPC and the planning and development services have put into improving the customers’ experience in making Longmont open for solar business. In the last three years, the number of solar customers in Longmont has nearly tripled and this certification helps alert our residents that Longmont is interested in making this process simple for them, which in turn should encourage more participation within the community.
