Lafayette has received Gold Level "Solar Friendly Community" certification and becomes the ninth Colorado community to earn this designation, and only the third -- along with Denver and Fort Collins-- to earn gold level certification. The certification is bestowed upon communities who are leaders in adopting best practices in permitting, inspection, planning and public education to help residents go solar.
As a result of the City's certification, Lafayette residents and businesses are eligible to receive a $500 discount on solar installation projects from participating installers.
“We’re proud and honored to have the City of Lafayette’s efforts recognized through the Solar Friendly Community certification,” said Curt Cheesman Director of Recreation, Senior Services and Facility Management. “This assists us to get the word out that Lafayette supports, practices and encourages solar energy alternatives in our community.”
