Residential Solar Permit Packages
At Avila Solar, we know that not every residential solar installation project is the same, so we offer several different packages so we can tailor our services to your project. No matter your solar permitting needs, we have an affordable package just for you.
Solar Only Permit Package
This package provides permitting and design services for the installation of solar panels only, without any battery backup systems or utility interconnection. The designs will meet all state, local, and utility requirements.
Solar Permit + Utility Interconnection Package
This package is perfect if you wish to integrate your solar power system into the existing power grid. In this way, you can supplement your energy usage with solar power, and even sell excess power back to the grid if feasible. This is slightly more complex than just a solar panel installation, but our designs will exceed all requirements for permit approval.
Battery Backup Only Package
If you already have a solar energy system in place but wish to install a battery backup system to tide you over in power outages or at night when no solar energy is being collected, this package is for you. We will evaluate your existing system and provide you with detailed plans for a battery backup system that will be compliant with all electrical and building codes.
Solar Permit + Battery Backup Package
Just getting started with your solar energy system? We have you covered. With this package, our team of experts will design both a solar panel installation as well as a backup battery bank. These plans can be submitted to acquire all necessary permits and used as a guide by you or your contractor as you install the system. This package can be used for both on-grid and off-grid systems.
Additional Solar Permit Services
We offer additional solar permit services such as PE certifications and preliminary three-dimensional designs. If you are starting from square one, we can provide detailed designs to help you visualize the project and determine the feasibility. Our team of engineers will review your design and provide Professional Engineering (PE) Electrical Certifications for your project.
Commercial Solar Permit Packages
Since commercial solar installation projects vary so widely, our pricing for these types of projects is on a case-by-case basis. We ask that you submit your information via our Commercial Design Request Form, after which we will contact you with a price. There is no upfront cost to submit your information.
