San Leandro Has Highest Costs for Installing Solar Panels

The Contra Costa Times reports that costs for installing typical solar panels is highest in San Leandro, according to a survey by the San Francisco Bay chapter of the Sierra Club. San Leandro topped the list with permit fees and inspection costs of $1,100 compared to lows of $3 in Mill Valley and $65 in Walnut Creek. The Sierra Club survey of 48 municipalities found that the average cost was $445.

A similar survey one year ago that found similar variations in other municipalities led to 14 cities lowering their fees.
