Solar Permitting Process

Applying for a solar permit is handled by each project's chosen solar electric (PV) contractor or installer. It is the contractor's responsibility to work with the City to provide the forms/documents necessary for Brighton's solar permitting process. For help picking an installer, visit our How to Go Solar page.
