Upgrading to Platinum with SolarAPP+

For communities already at Gold designation (or looking at Gold and beyond), improving solar PV and storage permitting times is an excellent way to save time and resources and make solar easier to install. One of the best ways to do so is to utilize SolarAPP+, a free, automated online permitting platform developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and partners. Our new resource offers guidance on how communities can move from Gold to Platinum designation using SolarAPP+, reducing the time required to issue permits and increasing access to solar power in the process!
