Chicago Streamlines Rooftop Solar Power Permits

A new building permit process developed with the aid of a $750,000.00 grant from the U. S. Department of Energy’s Sun Shot Rooftop Solar challenge has cut the time involved in pulling a City of Chicago building permit for rooftop solar power installations from a month to a single day, and cut the permit fee to $275.00. Chicago’s new website is touted by city officials as a “one stop shop” for approval, installation and connection of rooftop solar power panels.

Chicago’s electric utility Commonwealth Edison is preparing a year end launch for an online tool which will enable solar power users to receive utility bill credit for connecting their solar panels to Com Ed’s grid.
