SolarAPP+ is a free tool developed by NREL, in partnership with UL Solutions, International Code Council and others, that streamlines local permitting by allowing localities to safely and quickly review and approve rooftop solar applications through an online automated and standardized approval process. More than 27 localities across the US, including two in Virginia, are already using SolarAPP+ to streamline their workflow and reduce the overall time involved in issuing solar permits to less than one day.
