Solar energy is one of the cleanest sources of renewable energy available, and Orange County is committed to supporting the responsible implementation of this technology for the benefit of our residents.
The County has recently applied to be designated as a SolSmart community! Through this program from the US Department of Energy, the County hopes to access technical assistance that will help us make Orange County an even better place for solar energy generation. Read our commitment letter.
