Roanoke recognized for efforts to encourage growth of solar power

Monday morning, the city announced it has received a “bronze designation” from the SolSmart program, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.

The designation indicates that Roanoke has taken steps to promote the growth of solar energy by streamlining the permitting process, adopting solar-friendly zoning, providing easy access to information and offering a property tax break.
