Now that winter is almost on us (we just got eight inches of snow yesterday), it’s time to start thinking about next year if you want a renewable energy system. With the permit requirements for net metering and historic preservation, starting the permit application process now will save valuable construction time next spring. Our experience with obtaining permits in 2011 was not good – Certificates of Public Good taking 60 to 120 days for approval, and historic preservation permits taking a minimum of 30 days. Following this experience, we look forward to a more streamlined permitting process and quicker turn-around time for approvals. Let us start your permit process now so there is no delay when we start the installation season.
