We have been working hard over the last several years to build community. We have been working on roads, finances, neighborhoods, diversity, city departments, our business community and our environmental impact.
I had the honor of accepting the AIM Green Communities Project of the Year Award, a state wide award for our community acknowledging the impact we have made in the environment through our many solar projects. This award is possible because of the residents, businesses, MACOG (Leah Thill) and the city who worked together investing in our future.
Goshen earned the Gold level certification from SolSmart, making us the 40th community in the United States to earn this honor. We soon after started our Solarize process to help get the best pricing possible for solar installations. (Solarize was a joint process between Napannee, South Bend, and Goshen).
The City of Goshen now outranks many of the well known “Solar Cities.,” (i.e. Phoenix, San Francisco, L.A., Sacramento) This ranking is created by looking at solar output per person.
With great pride,
Mayor Jeremy Stutsman
