Harris County working with SolSmart program


Harris County is taking bold steps to make solar energy accessible and widespread to help reduce energy costs, achieve sustainability goals, and promote economic growth. Learn about Solar Planning Best Practices in Harris County and Best Practices in Solar Permitting.

Best Practices in Solar Inspection Checklists: We recommend all municipalities in Harris County to have a solar inspection checklist that businesses and residents can reference when they want to go solar. Harris County has collaborated with the City of Houston and recommends looking the City’s recently updated solar inspections checklist as a good local example when considering your own municipality’s checklist.

Harris County has also been working with SolSmart and recommends using their template if it is more applicable to your jurisdiction.
