City of Madera adopts SolarAPP+ to streamline solar permitting process

The City of Madera has partnered with the California Energy Commission and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to introduce SolarAPP+, an advanced plan review software aimed at simplifying the solar permitting process for rooftop installations. 


Following a comprehensive testing phase, SolarAPP+ is now in use by the City of Madera for processing Solar Photovoltaic applications, eliminating the need for traditional plan reviews.


The software’s main objective is to simplify code compliance checks, expedite the issuance of building permits, and enhance efficiency for qualifying rooftop solar systems.
