New Online Permitting for Residential Solar Installations in Fremont


Fremont residents planning to install a small residential rooftop solar system of 10 kilowatts or less can now obtain their solar permit online.

To get started, applicants can e-mail their permit application and plans. For more information, applicants can view the City’s submittal checklist.

So far, 78 permits have been issued using the new online process. The feedback received from applicants has been positive.

“I just want to take a moment and let you know how much I appreciate the new permitting process! It's quick, easy, saves me driving time, and saves on paper. The response has been amazing! It's nice to see City offices going as green as they can!” - Lola Gill, Sunrun Inc.

“The solar team is very well versed and quick in their actions.”- Boocha Pawa, Sunpower Corp.

Processing solar permits online improves operations at the permitting counter, saves time and money, and reduces paper clutter. It’s a win-win for the City and the Fremont community!
