After completing a PV system design, generating a solar permit package is as simple as clicking a single button. A PV permit package for a typical residential sloped rooftop using a popular racking system will include all of the pages listed above. Some types of configurations are only partially supported, and in those cases, some pages will be missing, and the designer will need to create the missing pages and add them to the PV permit package.
