We are grateful for the SolSmart recognition because it validates the many years of deliberate effort by our Building and Planning departments to streamline our permitting processes to be as fast and low-cost as they can be. One solar installation professional recently wrote to tell us, ‘You guys are so fast, you rock! I am so happy with your team and the permitting process.’
