Frisco is proud to have achieved the Silver SolSMART designation in recognition of our efforts toward creating a solar-friendly community. In partnership with the SolSmart team and High County Conservation Center’s dedicated staff members, we are working to improve solar market conditions to make it faster, easier, and more affordable for our residents and businesses to install solar energy systems.
These efforts will also increase the efficiency of local processes related to solar development, which may save our local government time and money.
SolSmart builds upon our community’s collaboration with the High Country Conservation Center which has resulted in the creation of a home energy efficiency program, a commercial energy efficiency program, a community Energy Action Plan, and a Climate Action plan. Town of Frisco will leverage SolSmart to achieve the following goals:
We are committed to driving continual improvement in our solar market, and all the related areas identified as community priorities in our Climate Action and Town Strategic Plans. To measure progress along the way, Frisco and High Country Conservation Center will track key metrics related to solar energy deployment, such as installed solar capacity and number of installations across sectors on our behalf.
