The Residential Solar Installation Permit Process
The Governor calls for California to use renewable energy more. Therefore, the City of Sacramento expedited building permits for small residential solar systems. As a result, homeowners and contractors are able to apply for a solar installation permit and get approved faster. Although, the expedited process is only for the residential solar system not exceeding 10 kilowatts.
Since January, the Community Development Department has approved 675 permits for residential solar installation. Furthermore, installation is expected to increase in the coming years as the permit process becomes easier.
Expediting the permit process for installation will encourage the effective improvement of the solar industry and make installation easier. Most importantly, we can now save more than half in permitting cost. Before, the solar installation permit cost was $1,000. However, fees have been reduced now to $304. These are the state's action plan for climate change - to encourage the use of clean energy to improve air quality.
