Solar application processing moving to new platform

Aug 30, 2021

Applications will temporarily cease Sept. 15-30, 2021

From Sept. 15 through Sept. 30, 2021, the City of Georgetown will temporarily stop accepting solar permit and interconnection applications while the City transitions to a new portal and service provider.

All solar permit applications received through Sept. 15 will be processed through the current application, My Permit Now.

Starting Oct. 1, the City will resume accepting solar interconnection applications on a new portal. This new portal will allow a more streamlined process for submitting a Distributed Energy Resource (DER) interconnection application. DER systems include roof-top solar photovoltaic units, residential battery storage, etc.

The public will be notified when the portal goes live.
