Don’t block the sun with red tape. Go for the Gold!

Permitting delays are making it hard for families to go solar.

The current permitting process for home solar installations in Miami-Dade County takes too long and makes going solar more expensive than it should be. Instead of taking a few days, permits for solar sometimes take months.

The solution is for Miami-Dade to adopt the “Gold” solar permitting guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Energy’s SolSmart program. Miami-Dade currently follows SolSmart’s lowest-level “Bronze” standards. The Gold designation would require a streamlined permitting pathway for small solar systems with a turn-around of no more than three days.
