Through the New England Solar Cost-Reduction Partnership, the New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning has developed the NH Guide to Residential Rooftop Solar PV Permitting, Zoning and Interconnection. The guide is available at http://www.nh.gov/oep/energy/saving-energy/index.htm.

The guide includes information and tools to assist municipal officials, installers and others with implementing residential rooftop solar PV projects. The guide covers current laws and regulations impacting residential solar PV, recommendations for permitting and zoning and information about utility interconnection. Related tools are included in the guide's appendices: a Sample Solar PV Project Checklist, Sample Solar PV Permit Application, Sample Structural Review Worksheet, and a Simplified Guide to Utility Interconnection Requirements.
