Solar PV Information

In an effort to provide consistent customer service Salt Lake City has worked diligently with organizations such as Utah Clean Energy and Utah Solar Energy Associations, as well as neighboring jurisdictions (Salt Lake County, Summit County, West Valley City, Park City, and Midvale).  The permit application below is modeled after the “Expedited Permit Process for PV Systems” prepared by Bill Brooks, PE.  This document (commonly referred to as the “Solar abc’s”) is considered to be the standard for all PV permitting processes.  For the full Solar abc’s report, click HERE.

Every effort has been made to stay consistent with the streamlined approach outlined in this document.  However, we have modified the document to include local rules/regulations and also to include all possible stakeholders in the review process.

Upon completion of the following application and when all required information is provided, the review of your solar PV installation should go smoothly.
