The Solar Energy Industries Association was in Napoleon today to honor the community as "America's Number One Solar Small Town."
The SEIA is the trade association of the U.S. solar energy industry.
The group chose Napoleon for the honor because of public and private support of the solar industry.
Two solar firms, AP Alternatives and Isofoton North America, are located in Napoleon. The Campbell Soup facility in town has a solar array that helps power its plant, and the city has teamed with American Municipal Power to build a solar field.
