A Master Electrician is required to apply for the permit.
Solar panels installed on ground level only require an electrical permit.
Roof Solar Panels
Solar panels installed on a roof require one of the following:
- A letter from either the truss manufacturer or a P Engineer stating that trusses are designed to carry the additional loads (only an electrical permit will be required).
- If a letter from a truss manufacturer or from a P Engineer cannot be provided, a Building Permit is required, along with the condition that an Engineer's design showing additional support for the truss system be provided. An electrical permit is also required.
- Any Solar permit applications received must be reviewed by a Building and Electrical Safety Codes Officer prior to issue of a permit.
