Solar In Palos Park

The Village is committed to providing transparency in building requirements for photovoltaic installations. To this end, the Village has participated in the SolSmart program, a national designation program designed to recognize communities that have taken key steps to address local barriers to solar energy and foster the growth of mature local solar markets. 

Permits are required for the installation and maintenance of photovoltaic solar systems. All the information you need to start your project is right here.
