Houston Permitting Center to Prioritize Solar Panel Installation

Solar Panel Graphic


The City of Houston is one of the largest purchasers of green energy. To continue to encourage the installation of green technologies by residents and business owners, the Houston Permitting Center is pleased to announce that it will prioritize the review of solar-only plans.

Once at 20 days, the review of solar-panel plans for existing residential and commercial buildings will be reduced to 7 days.

Be eco-conscious and use the new electronic plan review system. Customers may now apply for a building permit, pay the fees, and upload plan documents and drawings all online. Save trees, time, and money with EPR. Visit to begin your online permit application.
