The United States Conference of Mayors gave Blacksburg, VA Mayor Ron Rordam the 2015 U.S. Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Award for the town’s solar effort, which was organized by Solar United Neighbors of Virginia and Community Housing partners. Blacksburg was the first community in Virginia to launch a such an initiative. It quadrupled the amount of residential solar in the city in one year. The program has served as a role model for many cities across the country.
