The SolSmart national community designation program is a new U.S. Department of Energy-funded effort to address solar soft costs with the objective of making it faster, cheaper, and easier to go solar. To help your local government and your community qualify, SolSmart offers no-cost technical assistance delivered by a team of national solar experts. Attend this special session and receive a detailed overview of SolSmart as well as actionable information to help your community gain national recognition for your solar achievements.
