OK, so a few weeks ago we filed all the paperwork with Solar City. It appears that while we have bitchen’ credit, you need really bitchen credit for the lease program, so they had to think about us for a while before we were approved for the program, which we were.
We’ve now scheduled a ‘site audit’ in which one of their people will come to the house and take measurements, etc. so they can design the system and prepare the drawings for the city building permit. I’ll stop in at the City today and find out how challenging that will be (it’s all part of the Solar City package, but if I can help smooth things along – why not?).
So August 5 is the site visit, and we expect to be in permitting several weeks after that…
…to be continued.
