City of Jordan Achieves SolSmart Bronze Designation

The City of Jordan is pleased to announce it has earned the Bronze designation from SolSmart, a national program that recognizes cities that foster solar energy usage and remove obstacles to solar development at the local level. The City made changes to permitting, inspection, planning and zoning processes that will help solar companies reduce the cost of installations and pass those savings on to consumers.

The City currently receives 120% of electricity used for City purposes from community solar gardens, and understands the importance of lowering barriers to solar development. By receiving the Bronze SolSmart designation, Jordan is streamlining requirements and taking steps to encourage solar development. SolSmart is an initiative led by The Solar Foundation and the International City/County Management Association and funded by the US Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office.
