The Community Development Department was recognized by SolSmart for its engagement in the SolSmart program by making it faster, cheaper and easier to go solar. In addition, SolSmart wanted to honor the department for its hard work and leadership to reduce soft costs and barriers to going solar. The solar application process is streamlined, making it lucrative for residents to add solar to their property.
A home solar panel system consists of several solar panels, an inverter, a battery, a charge regulator, wiring, and support materials. Sunlight is absorbed by the solar panels and is converted to electricity by the installed system. The battery stores electricity that can be used at a later time, like cloudy days or during the evening. Learn more about solar.
