A Guide to Preparing Solar Permitting Checklists

Checklists are an integral part of the permitting process. They provide a simple list of required information for either the permit application or the inspection that follows.

As such, they can serve as guides for solar installers as well as permit review staff and inspectors. Providing clear and accurate information to potential applicants upfront can be a simple and efficient way for municipalities to improve the completeness and accuracy of the permit applications they review. IREC created this two-pager to introduce these documents to permitting staff and to provide some tips on how to draft effective versions for your own community.
