    NEW CA LAW STREAMLINES SOLAR PERMITTING

    Assembly bill could lower cost of residential solar in California

    Chad Garland, August 23, 2014 LA Times

    The Solar Permitting Efficiency Act (AB 2188), designed to streamline and standardize the permitting process statewide and save solar buyers $1,000 or more on installations, passed California’s Senate 22-1, and its Assembly 66-1, and is expected to be quickly signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown…The bill, which requires cities and counties to adopt ordinances that make residential rooftop solar system permitting and inspection more uniform and faster, was written by Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance) after officials from Torrance’s Verengo Solar told him some jurisdictions’ bureaucratic red tape delay installation 65 days. Manufacturing efficiencies have steadily driven down solar hard costs since 2006 but soft costs like those from delays in permitting and interconnection have remained nearly unchanged because California’s 500-plus jurisdictions have an array of non-uniform processes and codes. click here for more
