Solar America Cities (USA)

Through the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar America Cities partnership, 25 major U.S. cities are working to accelerate the adoption of solar energy technologies for a cleaner, more secure energy future. The Solar America Cities program has engaged over 180 organizations, including municipal, county, and state agencies, solar companies, universities, utilities, and non-profit organizations.

These partners have made a commitment to power their cities with clean, safe, reliable energy -- solar energy. Cities across the country are realizing the benefits of solar energy:
* Power from secure, domestic energy
* Sustainable, "green" urban development
* Clean energy production that helps meet greenhouse gas reduction targets and climate change goals
* Development of new economic opportunities.

The city solar partnerships have committed to developing a sustainable solar infrastructure that removes market barriers and encourages the adoption of solar energy by residents and businesses. These cities are taking a comprehensive, city-wide approach that lays the foundation for a viable solar market and provides a model for other cities to follow.
