SDCI Closures, Service Updates, and Inspection Requirements

SDCI customer service areas remain closed until further notice and continue offering services online. King County has approval from the State Department of Health to allow all private construction activities that are low-risk and adhere to strict COVID 19 Job site Requirements. The City of Seattle has issued requirements for construction projects seeking inspections. The City WILL NOT INSPECT any site that does not follow these requirements.


Summary: This Tip was developed jointly by the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) and Seattle City Light (SCL), who are working together to ensure that solar energy systems in Seattle are installed safely and provide maximum benefit to the owner. If you are thinking of installing a solar electric system, keep in mind that, while solar electric systems offer unique rewards and can displace a portion of home or business electricity needs, energy efficient equipment and other improvements may provide a quicker path to lowering electric bills.
