SolSmart Designates 7 New Solar-Friendly Communities

Today, SolSmart is recognizing seven new cities and counties for making it faster, easier, and cheaper to go solar. These communities will be honored today at the National League of Cities City Summit in Pittsburgh, PA.

The community receiving a SolSmart Silver designation is:

Indianapolis, Indiana

The six communities receiving a SolSmart Bronze designation are:

Charleston County, South Carolina
Inyo County, California
Perry, Iowa
Orlando, Florida
Pinecrest, Florida
West Hollywood, California

In addition, two communities previously designated SolSmart Bronze moved up to the SolSmart Gold designation: Claremont, California and Redwood CityCalifornia. Indianapolis also received special recognition for solar-friendly planning, zoning, and development.

Congratulations to all new SolSmart designees! To achieve designation, these cities and counties took steps to cut red tape and expand job-creating solar markets in their communities.

Today’s announcement brings the total number of SolSmart designees to 29 since the program began in April 2016. We hope many more cities and counties will receive designation in short order, and we’re providing no-cost technical assistance to help make that happen.
