Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the City of Los Angeles, the South Bay region is home to pristine beaches and business parks, oil refineries and a nature preserve … and now eight new SolSmart designated cities! In 2019, eight communities including Torrance, along with the South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG), all earned SolSmart designation for their cutting-edge work advancing solar energy, along with related technologies like electric vehicles (EVs).

SolSmart staff recognized these communities at the SBCCOG Meeting of the Board in Redondo Beach, California.
