Ever thought about installing solar panels on your roof?
Concerned about the complexity of the permit process?
Wondering where to go for help?
As part of a federal Department of Energy grant, Kirkland and other grant partners (Seattle, Bellevue) have developed a streamlined process for the permitting of small-scale rooftop-mounted solar installations for single-family residential customers.
All solar photovoltaic (PV) systems require an Electrical Permit and, in some rare cases*, a Building Permit.
*Note: If you do not qualify for the Building Permit Exemption (Section 3 of the checklist linked to below) you will need to apply for both a Building Permit and a separate Electrical Permit.
