Thank you for your time! I am just curious how this would work for the East Coast and Downstate NY aka Yonkers, Lewisboro, NY, MA, CT. These AHJ's are very difficult to get a response from unless I spend days hounding them. Any suggestions? Thank you! Kelley

is the $25.00 for each permit applied for in addition to the permit fees the AHJ's require?

Have to jump to another call. I’ll have to listen to the rest if there’s a recording circulated. It would be great to hear from code officials who are using the platform. In my soft cost reduction experience in CT, referrals from other code officials is very impactful. Thank you!

Jeff and SolarAPP team, thank you very much for the SolarAPP and appreciate all the efforts in making this happen!!

Is/will there be a site listing all the jurisdictions that have taken the plunge so far? Personally I'd be curious to see when various munis in North Carolina get on board once it gets rolling in my State but I'd think such a list would be helpful nationwide so advocates can outreach to AHJs in nearby or similarly sized towns where the (positive) experiences of early adopters could be most persuasive...
