Solar Permits Now Online

Posted on September 15, 2016 at 2:01 PM by Suzanne Iarla

The Building Division, working with West Coast Code Consultants, has launched an online process through which solar permit applications and documents can be electronically submitted for review and approval. Once approved, the permit can also be issued electronically. This will eliminate the necessity for any solar company personnel to physically come to City Hall to do business. The process is currently in test mode with a few select companies. When staff is satisfied that the process is working well, the portal link will be available on the City’s website with its own separate page for any solar permit application that meets the expedited requirements for residential solar systems of 10 kilowatts or less.
