Apply online for Renewable Energy Permits and ePermits, pay fees, schedule building inspections.


The County of San Luis Obispo now offers users the ability to apply for Renewable Energy Permits, ePermits, schedule building inspections, look up permit details and pay fees online through the County’s Citizen Self-Service Portal or CSS.

Following a one-time verification process, licensed contractors can now submit applications for Renewable Energy Permits and ePermits online through CSS. ePermits include instant permits such as a water heater replacement or electrical panel replacement. Renewable Energy Permits include, for example, solar/photovoltaic system or electric vehicle charging station permits that require plan review.

Get started today by visiting CSS.
