The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) has received a bronze designation from the national SolSmart program for helping local governments across the Dallas-Fort Worth area make it faster, easier and more affordable to go solar. NCTCOG is the first regional organization in Texas to achieve SolSmart designation.
Andrea Luecke, president and executive director at The Solar Foundation said “This designation recognizes the superb leadership from NCTCOG in leading a collaborative effort to encourage solar and other renewable energy growth in the Lone Star State. Other Texas communities that are interested in going solar should take advantage of the resources that NCTCOG has to offer.”
Their website includes a comprehensive guide to increasing solar deployment across Texas, with steps for homeowners to go solar, best management practices for local governments, an extensive resource library, training for a variety of audiences, including real estate professionals and fire and code officials, and much more.
