What is SolarAPP+?

SolarAPP+, short for Solar Automated Permit Processing, is an online web portal that automates the plan review process for issuing permits to qualified contractors to install code-compliant residential (1 & 2 family dwellings, ADU’s) rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Based on California building, electrical, and fire codes, SolarAPP automatically performs a compliance check based on inputs supplied by the contractor to ensure the proposed system is safe and code compliant. Installation practices, workmanship, and adherence to the approved design are then verified by a City of Sonoma Building Inspector through the normal inspection process.  SolarAPP+ lowers permit costs and expedites the issuance of solar PV permits and installations for eligible projects.  For more information go to the SolarAPP+ Webpage.
