The North Central Texas Council of Governments recently partnered with SolSmart, a national solar-designation program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office recognizing cities, counties and towns that foster the development of mature local solar markets, to recognize five local cities making strides toward becoming solar-friendly. The awards are gold for Cedar Hill; silver for Kennedale; and bronze for Denton, Plano and Lewisville.
The cities were judged across the following categories: permitting; planning, zoning, and development; inspection; construction codes; solar rights; utility engagement; community engagement; and market development and finance.
