Think solar this Earth Day

Have you ever considered harnessing the power of solar energy? Johnson County has taken great strides to make solar an easier solution for Johnson County residents and businesses. Due to these efforts, Johnson County Government recently received recognition from the Mid-America Regional Council as a gold-level Solar Ready Community.

The are several types of “sun energy” systems that fit in the category of solar.

  • Solar hot water systems may be roof or ground mounted (to replace or augment a typical residential hot water heater)
  • Passive solar systems (windows, walls and floors made to collect, store and distribute solar energy)
  • Photovoltaic solar systems which generate electricity

If you are curious about solar, there are some helpful resources available. Our Solar Installation page provides construction guidelines and a checklist on how to apply for a permit. You can also map the solar potential of your house with the Metro Kansas City Solar Map. Below are pictures of solar installations from residents in the unincorporated areas of Johnson County.
