California law to require automated, instant rooftop solar permits
There is a new California law that requires cities and counties to adopt automated, instant rooftop solar permits. This will cut project timelines and costs - automated permits support a faster buildout of clean energy. “California has passed SB 379, the Solar Access Act, which will require cities and counties to adopt automated solar permitting systems. The act is expected to lead to shortened project times and lower permit costs for residential solar.
The law is a welcome change to rooftop solar installers and customers, who rely on short project timelines for a positive customer experience. Projects with a nameplate capacity of 38.4 kW and below are eligible for automated permitting.
The bill states that to reach its clean energy goals, California may need to deploy up to 6 GW of new renewable energy and storage resources annually.” -PV Magazine
