Expedited Permit Processing For Small, Rooftop Solar Installations

Please Take Note!

In September of 2014, Governor Brown signed into law the Solar Permitting Efficiency Act (Assembly Bill 2188) which requires local governments to adopt an Administrative Ordinance creating an expedited permit process for rooftop solar installations under 10 kilowatts.

On August 11, 2015, the Grand Terrace City Council adopted an ordinance for the implementation of Assembly Bill 2188 that conforms to the permitting process that is set forth in the California Solar Permitting Guidebook.
