Small Residential Rooftop Solar Energy Systems Ordinance
The County of Los Angeles is committed to providing an expedited, streamlined permitting process to encourage the use of small residential rooftop solar energy systems. In compliance with the requirements of California Assembly Bill 2188, the County of Los Angeles has developed an expedited permit process for small residential rooftop solar energy systems on one- or two-family dwelling that involves either a photovoltaic system that is no larger than 10 kilowatts alternating current or a solar thermal system that is no larger than 30 kilowatts thermal. Chapter 68, Expedited Permitting for Small Residential Rooftop Solar Energy Systems, and BCM 6807 Article 1 – Expedited Permitting Process for Small Residential Rooftop Solar Energy Systems outline the requirements and procedure to follow for an expedited, one to three day plan check review and combination single inspection (Attachment F). All checklist and standard plans based on the California Solar Permitting Guidebook, policy, and forms are now available for download on our Publications page. For questions on the process or requirements, please contact Mostafa Kashe at firstname.lastname@example.org or (626) 458-6355.
