A new study from the Rocky Mountain Institute and the Georgia Tech Research Institute finds that U.S PV installation labor costs can be decreased from $0.49/watt to $0.29/watt by utilizing installation best practices. Researchers studied installation practices at 26 sites in the U.S. and Germany to determine current practices and future opportunities.

More than 18,000 municipalities in the U.S. set their own solar permitting requirements. As a result, solar permitting requirements and costs vary dramatically city by city. Solar permitting can either be a walk in the park, or a bureaucratic headache. Vote Solar is developing a highly interactive permitting website that catalogs and scores current municipal permitting practices. The website incorporates data on current permitting practices from Clean Power Finance’s (CPF) National Solar Permitting Database (www.solarpermit.org), and scores municipalities on Vote Solar and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council’s (IREC) nine ‘solar permitting best practices.’ The website will include an education center with resources to empower citizens to streamline permitting practices in their communities.
