photovoltaic permit for single family residences. An
Eligibility Checklist for Expedited Solar Photovoltaic Permitting
shall be completed prior to the solar plan review.
For roof mounted PV arrays, sized greater than 10 kW AC: These types of submittals will be taken in for plan review, with a 10 business day turn-around.
For ground mounted PV arrays: These types of submittals will be taken in for plan review, with a 10 business day turn-around. Structural engineering calculations are required, indicating required footings and solar panel required bolting.
