The City of Norfolk originally earned SolSmart Bronze in 2022, and then leveled up to SolSmart Gold in 2023. Their efforts have included guidance on installing solar PV in historic districts within the city; updating zoning, permitting, and inspection practices; provided a PACE financing program that included solar PV as an eligible technology, and procured solar energy for municipal operations.
