- Fees – All Solar permits are based on project value. The applicant provides us with the bid amount of the job.
Fee calculations are as follows based on that valuation:
Value $0.00 to $2,000 = $40.00 base fee + 2.5% of value
Value $2,001 to $10,000 = $100.00 base fee + 1% of Value
Value Over $10,001 = $180.00 base fee + .5% (of portion over $10,000.00)
