Has your community or county implemented an innovative solar action or program? If so, we encourage you to apply for this new award.


The SolSmart Innovation Awards is a new awards program that seeks to further highlight and recognize designees who have implemented innovative solar actions or programs. The application is a short process where communities document progress – and preferably, success – and show how their implementation was unique, novel, or innovative.

Communities are welcome to present their unique approaches in any of the SolSmart designation categories or submit any noteworthy action taken to reduce solar-associated soft costs, time or complexity or which achieves notable solar adoption in the community.
