Solar System Permitting
Westminster named state of Colorado's top solar friendly city!
The City of Westminster has been certified as a Platinum Level Solar Friendly Community by an innovative partnership between local governments and the solar industry. Westminster is the first community in Colorado to achieve the Platinum designation from the Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association (COSEIA) as part of its Solar Friendly Communities Program. The certification is earned by communities that are leaders in adopting best practices in permitting, inspection, planning and public education to help residents go solar. The program awards points toward certification based on the “12 Best Practices: A Roadmap to a Solar Friendly Community.”
Solar energy is one of the fastest growing industries in the nation and providing a steamlined process can be beneficial to the community.
