Solar Panels

The City of Chattanooga is dedicated to promoting and supporting development utilizing solar energy and green infrastructure.  Solar panels can be an excellent way to absorb sunlight and generate energy for the community or a single home.  The City is committed to facilitating a larger use of solar installation in the private and public realms of Chattanooga.

To read more about Chattanooga's commitment to solar energy, you can read the Solsmart Statement Letter written by our Mayor, Any Berke, here.  You can find Chattanooga on the Solsmart cities map hereScreen Shot 2018 04 13 at 9.43.04 AM
