Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Systems

Miami-Dade County is committed to green building design and construction standards in order to safeguard our environment, enhance quality of life and promote sustainability in our communities. 

Under current permitting processes, solar photovoltaic (PV) projects are permitted via the Concurrent Plans and Processing (CPP) system. This process allows the plans and documentation to be routed electronically to multiple departments for review and approval concurrently, thus allowing the permitting process to take three days or less after a complete application is received.

Residents seeking a permit for a solar PV energy system are required to submit the following items at the time of permit application: 

Applicants submitting plans in a paper format will be assessed a conversion fee. The fee must be paid in addition to required upfront fees prior to the documents being routed for plan review and permit issuance. For more information, call the Permit Records Section at 786-315-2100.
