- SolarApp+ is the Solar Automated Permitting Platform developed for cities and counties by the federal Department of Energy.
- SolarApp+ reduces the time and cost of permitting solar roof installations dramatically. In Tucson, AZ SolarApp+ reduced the time to obtain a solar roof permit from 3 weeks to 1 day.
- If your city council has moved to install this app, your work on this subject is done. If not, let me tell you how the city council of Mission Viejo was finally prodded to take action.
