Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) has released its California Solar Permitting Guidebook. This book helps Californians understand the new act signed last fall by Governor Jerry Brown, helping to ease the bureaucracy of residential installations.
By 2020, California plans on having one-third of its electricity come for clean resources, thanks to the state’s renewable energy portfolio standards. California was #1 in 2014 solar PV installations, as it typically is.
“California leads the nation in rooftop solar installations, but achieving the state’s ambitious goals for renewable energy will require even greater solar adoption, and the permitting process has been a major barrier,” said CSE Senior Project Director Tamara Gishri-Perry.
