Community Renewable Electricity

#kWs (kilowatts) of renewable electricity installed town-wide

The Building Division has implemented an expedited solar-permitting process for ≤10 kW systems. We will create a solar PV brochure to inform and assist with the permitting of PV systems for our unique mountain microclimate.

This information tracks the estimated electricity production capacity, or power rating in kilowatts DC, of solar photovoltaic installations town-wide.

Renewable energy systems can include solar photovoltaic, hydropower, and wind power systems.

Renewable electricity generated at the point-of-use offsets the need for utility-generated electricity. Currently, Truckee’s utility-generated electricity includes a mix of both renewable and non-renewable sources.

This information is source from Town building permits for photovoltaic installations.
