The County of Fresno is working with the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to make applying for roof-mounted solar systems easier and faster through SolarAPP+. It is a web-based platform that automates solar permitting for local governments and eliminates the need for a plan review check by permitting staff.
Contractors will be able to register as an installer on SolarAPP+ and submit their application. They will then be provided a SolarAPP+ confirmation information with an ID number that will then be used on the County's permitting system located here: https://www.fresnocountyca.gov/Departments/Public-Works-and-Planning/citizens-portal
Please follow the instructions below on how to submit a Solar permit with the County using Solar APP+.
