The City of Huntington Beach has achieved the designation of a SolSmart Gold Award. SolSmart is a national designation program that recognizes communities that take bold steps to make it faster, easier, and more affordable to go solar.
Communities that achieve designation are recognized as Gold, Silver or Bronze. Local governments achieve designation by meeting specific criteria to show that they have removed obstacles to ultimate solar energy growth. The criteria evaluates processes for permitting, planning and zoning, market development, and finance.
The SolSmart Program Director mentions that this designation is more than just an award. It is a signal that the City is officially “open for solar business,” and shows our community that Huntington Beach is an excellent place to go solar. The SolSmart Program Director and Program Manager has presented the City with an official SolSmart Gold Plaque, which you will find mounted on the wall in the Planning Department.
