Expediting Solar Permits

Solar Panels

Solar panels are popping up everywhere as evidenced by the recent significant rise in applications for solar permits.  To help businesses and residents to reduce their carbon footprint, DPS is making it easier to get these solar panel permits through a referback program for solar permits

DPS held an open house and webinar on the streamlined process for expediting solar permits.

Check out the packet for Solar Permits which is also available on the DPS website.

 Protecting Our Tree Legacy

Tree Bulletin

Many urban trees die prematurely due to improper planting and care, DPS is providing a manual to customers to help save more trees.

The publication was created by tree experts at the U.S. Forest Service and is just like the owner's manual for automobiles and appliances it includes a parts list, instructions for installation, tips for troubleshooting common issues, recommended service and more.  

DPS invites you to join in our efforts to protect and care for Montgomery County's urban forest to help keep our communities livable.

Copies available at Department of Permitting Services at 255 Rockville Pike, 2nd floor.  


eServices now accepts ACH payments for online permits!
