Chico Reduce Building Fee for Single-Family Residential Solar Installations

This past spring, the City’s Building Division implemented an expedited on-line permitting program for smaller solar installations, which resulted in time-savings and convenience for permittees. In addition, on Oct. 20th, as part of its adoption of revised Building fees, and consistent with the City’s Climate Action Plan, Council agreed to reduce the Building fee for single-family residential solar installations from $164.00 to $77.00. This approximately 53% fee reduction is intended to serve as an incentive to advance an important City initiative. The new fee goes into effect on December 20, 2015.
