Cuyahoga County, Ohio recently celebrated its SolSmart Gold designation, earned after years of diligent work to make solar power easier to install and more accessible for everybody. Officials announced the achievement at an event that jointly recognized Cuyahoga County’s installation of solar panels on multiple government buildings and the work of municipal and residential solar co-ops, along with the SolSmart designation.
“Climate change requires us to do our part to offset and minimize greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere…While the region as a whole has a long way to go to get to net zero emissions by 2050, we think our County-led projects are important starting points for getting there. They reduce emissions. They save us money. They put local people to work. And they help set the example of how these projects can get done,” said County Director of Sustainability Mike Foley.
Congratulations, Cuyahoga County!
