Solar Access Act Compliance Petition: COUNTIES

Tell your county leaders: follow the law and make it easier to go solar

Dear County Board of Supervisors:

The Solar Access Act (SB 379) requires most cities and counties—including ours—to adopt online, automated, and instantaneous streamlined permitting for rooftop solar and batteries. The deadline to comply with the law was September 30th, 2023.

My understanding is that we are not in compliance with the law, and I am hoping you can help ensure that we comply quickly.

This new law is good for local residents. It’s twice as expensive to go solar in California than in many other developed places because local permitting requirements drive up the cost of going solar here. Streamlining solar permitting can make a big difference in helping more local residents go solar. Thank you!
