  • Created an online permitting checklist, increasing transparency for community members and solar installers.
  • Reviewed local zoning codes and identified restrictions that intentionally or unintentionally prohibit solar development

Encouraging solar energy is a key strategy in the pursuit of our 100% clean electricity by 2030 goal, and it requires cross-department and community-wide collaboration...This achievement would not have been possible without dedicated staff in the building division and planning department. We’re proud of the work we’ve done to make it easier to go solar, and we’re excited to be recognized as a SolSmart Gold community.
