sunMAX - How-To: Permitting Application - Site Survey Section

This section of the application contains specific information about the Drawings/Photos concerning the installation site.

Complete ALL fields accurately to ensure that permit application is approved in a timely manner. Once complete, click "Next" at the bottom of the page to proceed to the following section, "Electrical".

For clarification about the information required in this section, see the example below and definitions of each of the required fields.


Pulls array information directly from the Geometry Design based on the proposed customer sunMAX array.


In preparing these drawings, you may find that it is more convenient to a single, detailed drawing that meets the requirements for two fields (ex. PV Array & Site Electrical). If so, simply upload the same image file in both locations.

Click “Choose File” to upload a Photo (JPEG or PNG). For uploads containing multiple attachments, compress to a single ZIP file.

  • Drawing: PV Array(s)
    This should be an image of a satellite overview/drawing of the customer's house with the exact proposed locations of the panels drawn. A screenshot of the sunMAXdesign may suffice if done precisely.
  • Drawing: Roof Plane Measurements
    This drawing should provide an overview of the roof on which the solar array will be installed. Include precise measurements- roof dimensions, distance from panels to edge of roof, etc.
  • Drawing: Site Electrical
    This should be a drawing that shows the path the electrical conduit will take from the array to the breaker panel, noting whether the conduit will be exterior or interior.
  • Photo: Roof Surface(s)
    Provide a photo that shows detail of the roof surface.
  • Drawing: House Building Plan
    Provide a basic floorplan that includes precise dimensions.
