Residential rooftop solar is becoming ubiquitous and causing permitting and inspection backlogs across the country. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory has developed the solar automated permit processing platform plus (SolarAPP+) that has been proven to reduce permitting and inspection timelines by 20 business days.

In this interactive session, Jeffrey Cook, project lead on SolarAPP+ from NREL will introduce the tool, provide a demonstration showcasing its features (i.e. solar, solar and storage, and electric vehicles), summarize the performance of SolarAPP+ in adopting communities, and answer questions from stakeholders regarding how this free tool can be used in jurisdictions nationwide. Finally, NREL will provide an update on the SolarAPP+ team’s progress towards meeting US Department of Energy Secretary Granholm’s challenge to have 125 communities engaged with SolarAPP+.
