Helping Local Governments
Make it Faster, Easier and
More Affordable to Go Solar

Encouraging Solar Energy Development at the Local Level.

SolSmart provides recognition and no-cost technical assistance to help local governments remove barriers to solar energy growth. With the help of our team of local and national experts, cities, counties, and small towns are improving the business climate for solar energy and making it possible for even more homes and businesses to go solar. Communities receive designations of SolSmart Gold, Silver, and Bronze to recognize they are "open for solar business."

Gold, Silver & Bronze Designation

Making a Difference, One Community at A Time

With more than 130 designees nationwide, SolSmart helps local governments bring new business to their community, promote economic growth, and foster the creation of new jobs. Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative, our goal is to make it faster, easier, and cheaper to go solar.
