Photovoltaic Systems (PV)

All photovoltaic systems are required to meet our Residential Photovoltaic Requirements (PDF) and digital submittal requirements (PDF) (updated January 1, 2022).

Two options are available for PV plan check:

  • Regular: All PV systems may be submitted through our regular process (10-12 business days). Plans that are not City Standard Plans will not receive expedited review.
  • Expedited: Qualifying City Standard Plans PV systems may utilize our expedited  process (3 business days)
