About the Solar Ease Index

A solar rank is a combined statistic of both permit times and permit fees. The cities friendliest to solar have fast permitting times and low or non-existent fees. Unfriendly cities have long waits for permits, sometimes up to 30 days, and high fees. The goal of solar ranking reports is to help cities understand how they're helping, or hurting the efforts of homeowners to switch to clean, safe, and affordable solar energy.
