City of Chicago Solar Permit Trainings for Professionals

09 Sep 2013 9:55 PM | Lesley McCain (Administrator)


Earlier this year the City of Chicago created an expedited permitting process and established a new set of standards designed to facilitate and encourage the installation of Photovoltaic Panels (PV panels) in Chicago.  The new process and standards are detailed in the Department of Building’s new Photovoltaic Panel Permitting Guidelines.  Lindsay Anderson, the author of the guidelines, will be offering three training sessions to help design professionals to become familiar with the specific requirements for the Zoning, Electrical and Structural aspects of PV installations.


 The sessions will be held in the ground floor, large conference room in the Department of Building’s Racine Office located at 120 North Racine.  They are scheduled for September 24th, 25th and 26th from 9:00 AM to 12:00 (noon).  The material covered at each session will be the same so no need to register for all three. 


 Seating is limited so please register for one of the sessions by calling Michael Berkshire at 312.744.9363 or emailing at michael.berkshire@cityofchicago.org.
