We maintain a spreadsheet of solar permitting requirements for municipalities in our service area. Ranging from no permit required to >$2k. Building permits in addition to electrical permits in some cases. Building permit submittals required in the city of Milwaukee have at times become a black hole of hours one will never get back. It is clear municipalities are working through this new industry and until it streamlines the soft costs of permitting and other logistical requirements add some cost. I have leveraged AHJ's into more relaxed permitting requirements by sharing experience in other jurisdictions but this is rare.
