Project Permit Exposes Grey Areas Of Solar Permitting
June 14th, 2013 by Nicholas Brown
When pondering the installation of solar panels, some of the greatest grey areas are related to labor and permitting costs. Fortunately, a new project/website has a solution to the permitting issues.
The ease of obtaining a permit to install solar panels is dependent on how solar-friendly your region is, but how does one know? In order to determine how solar-friendly the region in which you want to install solar panels is, you have to do a lot of digging to find out what other people had to go through to install their panels.
Project Permit aims to streamline that process with the implementation of an interactive map which shows you the ease of solar permission by geographic region.
It enables you to pass your eyes over a map of an entire country in seconds and find the easiest place to obtain a permit.
Also, it’s important that you contribute your own input if you’ve gone through the process, so that you can help provide others with useful information.
Apart from all that, there is a bigger issue at play. Along with the fact that it shows you in which areas not to install solar panels, it also helps to raise awareness of red tape and unacceptable restrictions, so that people will work to correct them.
Aesthetically, it is also very professional. Check it out: Project Permit
