Solar Permitting for Residential Homes and Businesses
Georgia House Bill 57 was enacted under law in 2015 as O.C.G.A. § 46-3-63 to promote the use of solar energy. Solar projects in Georgia are covered by a variety of state and local rules and requirements: Solar Easement and GA Solar Financing Law.
If your property is located in a plan district, historic district, or conservation zone, there may be zoning regulations that determine where you can locate solar electric or solar water heating systems on your roof.
