Welcome to the City of Laramie's Solar Resource webpage

In an effort to reduce barriers to solar installation, reduce community-wide carbon emissions, improve community resilience through energy system diversification, and promote Laramie as a solar community, the City of Laramie has developed this site to assist in commercial and residential solar development.  This webpage contains a collection of solar information and resources for the community in order to facilitate interested party's understanding of the impact of city policy and regulation on the installation process.  Our community's solar goals can be found in Resolution Number: 2021-62.  For more information about the basics of solar energy, your solar options, and questions to ask solar professionals, read the Residential Consumer Guide to Solar Power and visit the Department of Energy's Homeowner's Guide to Going Solar.

In 2021 the City, in collaboration with SolSmart, reevaluated its development code, permitting process, and solar outreach efforts.  Through this process the City was awarded the designation of a SolSmart Silver community.  This designation continues to affirm City staff and elected officials dedication to a more ecologically friendly community.
