Superior joined Boulder County and Solar United Neighbors on a solar co-op program for residents. The county has installed solar panels at many facilities including the wastewater treatment plant, town hall, and fire station.

Our Town has made a commitment to solar energy and sustainability, and SolSmart helped make that commitment a reality. By listing solar permitting requirements online, having an average turnaround time of 2 days for residential PV permits, and allowing installers to apply for permits via email, we have ensured solar is more accessible and affordable to Superior residents and businesses. Advancing solar energy benefits the Superior community, by not only reducing our carbon footprint, but also helping us become more resilient and adaptive.
