A new report has been published for the Sierra ClubÂ’s Commercial and Residential PV permit fee campaign for Los Angeles County (see: www.solarpermitfees.org/losangeles.html ). This web link has an executive summary of the report that shows fee rankings for all jurisdictions in Los Angeles County.

The survey report shows that for commercial PV projects 131 kW in size, 62%(55 out of 89) L. A. County jurisdictions are over-charging fees, exceeding maximum cost recovery threshold levels as determined by a basic PV permit fee calculator highlighted in this new report. In addition, 47%(42 of 89) cities are charging excessive fees for residential PV projects.
