Lebanon Upgraded to SolSmart Silver

SolSmart Silver Logo

Last week, Lebanon was informed that we have been upgraded from SolSmart Bronze to Silver designation by the U.S. Department of Energy. This is the result of the D.O.E.’s reconsideration of two key features that the City had already put in place: 

1) codes in our zoning ordinance that accessory-use solar PV is explicitly allowed by right in all Zoning Districts; and 

2) City inspection staff who are trained in best practices for permitting and inspecting solar PV and/or solar and storage systems. 

The term ‘accessory solar’ means a solar PV system that is designed to supply power to principal use(s) on the same lot of land. 

The SolSmart designation is a points-based system, and achieving Gold might come soon. The specific element needed is a public commitment by Lebanon for a three-day turnaround time for small rooftop solar system permits. 

For more information about this designation, please read, "Lebanon Awarded 'SolSmart Bronze' for Advancing Solar Energy Growth".
