When Milwaukee Shines formed in 2008, the City of Milwaukee was named one of 25 Solar America Cities by the U.S. Department of Energy, and earned the distinction again in 2009. Since then, Milwaukee has streamlined the permitting process, created a solar zoning ordinance, and began providing financing resources for home and business owners. In addition, there are more than 1.5 MW of solar energy being produced in Milwaukee, which has exceeded the goal of 1 MW of solar capacity.
