  • Created an online permitting checklist, increasing transparency for community members and solar installers.
  • Reviewed local zoning codes and identified restrictions that intentionally or unintentionally prohibit solar PV development
  • Allowed solar by-right accessory use in all zones (so solar installations don’t require special permits or hearings)
  • Cross-trained both inspection and permitting staff on solar PV
The SolSmart designation shows that Frisco is streamlining the process to purchase and install solar panels, while keeping costs down for homeowners. This allows more local homes and businesses to obtain affordable, clean, and reliable electricity through solar.
