AB 1414 (Friedman) Solar energy systems: permits.


This bill eliminates the sunset on the maximum permit fees local agencies can impose on solar energy systems. This bill would revise and reduce the maximum permit fees, as specified, for photovoltaic and thermal systems and authorize permit fees that exceed these charges if the local agency provides substantial evidence, as part of a written finding and adopted resolution or ordinance, of the reasonable cost to issue the permit and the duration of the charge is not more than two years. The bill includes specific requirements for the permitting process.
