SolSmart Certification (2017)
Duluth was one of 11 communities to be awarded a SolSmart Advisor through a Department of Energy grant. Over the course of 6 months, Duluth worked with an advisor to address solar “soft costs” and barriers to the use of solar energy in the city, as well as apply industry-leading best practices, allowing the City of Duluth to be officially granted the designation of SolSmart Gold in September of 2017, with a total of 215 points in SolSmart’s rating system.

The City of Duluth would like to thank the Solar Foundation, the Department of Energy SunShot program, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory for the assistance and the opportunity to participate in the SolSmart Program.
