In 2017 the City of Ypsilanti was awarded a SolSmart Gold designation for its efforts in promoting solar power. You can read about that award here. Later, Ypsilanti also achieved special awards for our solar permitting, planning and market development. Being the first and only SolSmart award winner in Michigan the Solar Foundation has now made a case study about Ypsilanti to encourage other communities become solar ready. You can read about that here. Ypsi continues to strive for a 1000 solar roofs and becoming a solar destination.
