City of Oakland Ordinance 12327 allows for “Self-Certification for Renewable Energy Production Facilities”, waiving current design review requirements for installation. Filling out a simple form available at the City Planning and Zoning Desk streamlines the permit process by exempting qualifying facilities from design review.
Most solar energy systems installations are likely to be able to meet the requirements for using the form and the streamlined process. Wind projects will likely have more difficulty qualifying due to the limited height requirements.
