CALBO's AB 2188 Ordinance Toolbox

Based on the California Building Officials' (CALBO) analysis of Assembly Bill 2188 (AB 2188) and the collaborative efforts of stakeholders an ordinance toolbox has been developed.  Local jurisdictions can use the ordinance toolbox while implementing expedited permitting procedures for small residential rooftop solar systems. Please note this is not a legal opinion and we strongly advise each jurisdiction to consult with their legal counsel.
