Hello. Thank you for the work you are doing.My company, Permits.com supports electrical permit requests of all types throughout the US.Segmenting these requests (and inspection tracking) to leverage the SOLAR APP workflow for Residential PV requests will require we access to an API.Are you providing access to an API so that when we receive a request, that we can keep the customer within our platform ... providing them insight into all of their permits, SOLAR APP related and non-SOLAR APP related?
Jim DesJardins
Is NREL or SEIA able to help with introducing SolarApp to jurisdictions?
Evan Hays
With respect to the rollout of the solar app tool, do you expect there to be a large amount of usage by households or other consumers considering residential/rooftop installation as well as officials/firms that do project evaluation?
Christopher Castillo
This is excellent! Was/Is ASCE one of the stakeholders in the development of the APP, and if so, have they approved the SolarAPPs review of structural requirements of rooftop attachments per ASCE 7-16?
Nathan Hightower
Where and who harvests the data for the solar trading.
Ray Antonino
Good points Peter. Quality data in, quality data out.
