About Solar Power in Southern Arizona
Tucson is one of the the Department of Energy’s 25 designated Solar American Cities. Some of the goals, or Solar America Cities Action Areas, undertaken by these 25 cities are: organizing and strategizing a local solar effort, making solar affordable for residents and businesses, and creating jobs and supporting economic development.
The Solar Power 101 series at libraries is ideal for people new to solar energy, who are very interested in the basics and want to ask in-depth questions of local experts, as well as those already familiar with solar energy. Become informed about solar energy at Solar One Stop.
