Building Permits

Last modified on March 6, 2020

The Ontario building code requires a building permit for any roof mounted solar array >5 sq m in size.  This is basically anything larger than 2 or 3 panels.

Permit fees and requirements vary by municipality.

One thing that is common in all municipalities, however, is the need for a structural evaluation by a licensed Professional Engineer.

If you are buying your solar energy system from Generation Solar we will take care of all permits and inspections for you.
