Marty Roberts of Solar Sonoma County just emailed me with some exciting news. Santa Rosa was recently named one of 12 new "Solar America Cities," which qualifies the city to receive federal funding and technical assistance for project implementation of its Solar Sonoma County grant proposal. The objective of this proposal is a countywide solar program that accelerates and expands local solar energy production.
The foundation of Santa Rosa's proposal is the Solar Sebastopol program. The city is banding together other area cities and the county to expand the program countywide. The funds will contribute to efforts by Santa Rosa and the Solar Sonoma County partners' to increase the amount of solar installations in the County by 25 megawatts over the next three years. The goal of Solar Sonoma County is to become a public-private consortium of local governments, solar companies, businesses, and other groups and organizations.

Thank you Marty, we wish you and the Solar Sonoma County team great success!
