Public authorities and administration
Please consider possible extra requirements of your municipality while planning your PV system. Many states treat PV systems attached to the roof or the facade as structural components and do not demand for any authorization. You may find details to the specific regulations in the Building Code of your state. Special requirements need to be fulfilled for listed buildings and ground-mounted plants as these can influence the landscape. Sometimes the installation of energy systems is restricted by local construction plans. In these cases the Building Code of the municipality has specified information about the conditions for realizing energy systems. The developer (client) is responsible for the installation of a PV system. S/he has to ensure that the system does not influence the statics of the building and that the system is no risk for the public. This is no longer your problem with VOLTPOOL, we are your partner for all issues concerning your system! Please clarify with your municipality if you are planning to cut down a tree which might be a shadowing factor. Usually you need an authorization to fell trees with a stem diameter of 10cm and more.
