Broward County now offers Go SOLAR Online Permitting*, for rooftop solar photovoltaic system permitting. This online permitting system may be used for residential or low commercial properties that are governed by a participating municipality.

The online permitting system is designed to provide a one-stop solar permitting process with a single application form, electronic review and approval, and flat fee. Applicants can use this system to choose from pre-approved and pre-engineered solar panel mounting installation designs, and then apply for permits using those designs. Applicants must apply in person to request permits for installations that are NOT typical to one of the listed and pre-approved installation designs.

*The Go SOLAR Online Permitting System was made possible by the Go SOLAR Broward Rooftop Solar Challenge. The Rooftop Solar Challenge supports the goals of the Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Program and the SunShot Initiative, which seek to make solar electricity cost competitive without subsidies by the end of the decade.
