Solar Submittal & Inspection Requirements

Installing solar energy systems is one of the best ways to increase the value of your property, save on your monthly energy bills, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

If you are considering installing solar panels on your home, please note that sunny roof space is required. You can check the capacity of your home by visiting LA County Solar Map.

The City of Rancho Palos Verdes is committed to improving market conditions for the installation of solar energy systems for its residents and business. View a letter (PDF), which further discusses the City's commitment.
