New Solar Permitting Guide Available

August 10, 2012

The Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) has been working to remove barriers that constrain the expansion of small-scale renewables, as California strives to meet its goal of 12,000 megawatts of small-scale renewable energy.


To address some of the complexities involved in local permitting of small-scale renewable energy, OPR has teamed up with a variety of stakeholders, including local governments, to produce the California Solar Permitting Guidebook. It’s a first-of-its-kind guide that presents valuable guidance and information on solar permitting. The guidebook also has a number of templates and model forms to help local governments and contractors with the permit process.

The free guidebook along with additional resources and information can be found on OPR's website.
