Environmental Sustainability

Solar Energy in Hallandale Beach! The City of Hallandale Beach is a SolSmart Silver Designation! 

The SolSmart is a new national technical assistance and designation program, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative, designed to recognize communities that have taken key steps to address local barriers to solar energy and foster the growth of mature local solar markets. The SolSmart program seeks to address "solar soft costs," or business process or administrative costs that can increase the time and money it takes to install a solar energy system.  For more information view solar incentives.
