The City of Laurel has been designated as SolSmart Silver for advancing solar energy growth.

We're the first City in Maryland to receive this recognition.

Laurel has over 300 residential and commercial installations with Solar panels. Each installation requires a permit

and inspection from the Office of the Fire Marshal and Permit Services.  The City received special recognition in the

SolSmart Category of Inspection in 2018.

SolSmart is lead by the Solar Foundation and the International City/County Management Association ( ICMA) and funded by

the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative.
