Every solar installation requires fire, building, and electrical permits. Unfortunately, procuring these permits is often a long, complicated, and expensive process.
Collecting and reporting permit-related project data contributes as much as 30% to overall solar project costs, not to mention the time solar installers must spend tracking down local jurisdictions and their contact information.
Sunspec Alliance’s Orange Button Project aims to lower these costs and simplify the permit process — for free. In Sunspec’s recent webinar, “Standardized Solar Data at the Tipping Point,” both creators and users of Orange Button explained why the solar permit process is so challenging and how Orange Button helps to solve those challenges.
