  • The city has set an example locally by installing a solar array on its farmers’ market Building at the Raccoon River Valley Trailhead complex. This array provides power to the farmers market vendors, the Parks and Rec maintenance building, and an electric utility vehicle that is used in the parks.
A SolSmart designation is a signal that Perry is ‘open for solar business,’ helping to attract solar industry investment and generate economic development and local jobs. This is all part of the city’s long-term initiative to become more sustainable through advancing opportunities for job growth and healthy living in the local economy.
