You’re making a smart choice by going solar that can save you money and reduce your carbon footprint.
However, you may be wondering if you need a building permit to add solar panels to your home. The answer is “yes” — you will need a permit.
Any addition to your home is likely to require a permit, and adding anything, including photovoltaic panels, without learning about and applying for the proper permissions can have serious consequences. SuperGreen Solutions of Charleston will help you every step of the way.
Remember that regulations can vary from state to state, so it’s important that you follow the regulations specific to the state in which you intend to add solar panels to your building.
Getting a permit to install solar panels isn’t just about going down to City Hall and filling out a form. There may be local, state and federal building or safety standards you must comply with.
You may also need to have a local electrical inspector approve that you’re meeting the appropriate electrical codes. You, most likely, already have homeowners’ insurance. Your insurer may also have regulations about any additions to your house that you need to comply with in order to avoid invalidating your policy. The power company may also need to be notified and clear your solar panel plans. SuperGreen Solutions of Charleston will be involved in this process to make sure your new solar system complies with all of the local regulations needed.
