Park City, Utah is leading by example when it comes to solar. The city of 7,558, located southeast of Salt Lake City in the Wasatch Mountains is installing solar on municipal facilities, and working collaboratively with other jurisdictions in Northern Utah through the Wasatch Solar Challenge, one of the Department of Energy’s 22 Rooftop Solar Challenge teams. Since 2009, Park City has installed four solar projects on municipal facilities and the city is planning to complete two additional projects in 2012.
