CIRB Reveals 2014 Solar Permit Statistics

For the past year, CIRB has been tracking month-by-month photovoltaic (PV) installations and valuations across the state of California. 2014 numbers show the volume of solar permit issuance and city-level calculations of residential and commercial installations.

Along with detailed residential and non-residential building activity, CIRB has been compiling and offering 2014 solar and HVAC permit data as a one-time order and/or complimentary subscriber benefit in the new Energy Permit Summary Report.

All 58 California counties and cities within are included in the Energy data report, which revealed a total of 6,952 issued solar permits from January through December of 2014 and a cumulative construction valuation of $123.8 million.

A comprehensive report of 2014 photovoltaic installations will be published and distributed alongside the 2014 CIRB Annual Permit Summary Report.
