TWEETS

Thank you for adding information about this jurisdiction!

Please note that the information you have added will not immediately show up on this jurisdiction's scorecard. We are sending this data directly to SolarPermit.org, which hosts the National Solar Permitting Database, a free, online database of information related to solar permitting requirements of cities and counties across the country. Please allow a week or more for SolarPermit.org to approve the data. Developed by Clean Power Finance and supported by a Department of Energy grant, SolarPermit.org organizes and simplifies solar permitting processes by compiling the information in a single location. Using the community-based platform, users of the database keep the information up-to-date and relevant. The project's goal is to minimize the time and resources required to and support the mass-market adoption of solar. SolarPermit.org is an interactive, crowd-sourced website - similar to Wikipedia - for solar permitting requirements. The database is populated primarily by solar installers based on their experiences in the Authority Having Jurisdictions (AHJs) where they do business. Users vote to give a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" to verify new information added to the site and ensure accuracy. The SolarPermit.org database is a Department of Energy funded database.
