RBI Solar, Inc. has received approval from the California Division of State Architect on a Pre-Check solar carport structure design. The approval includes several canopy configurations to provide its clients with design flexibility. RBI made the move to create a more cost-effective solar racking structure.
The structural plan review process is typically lengthy, which can sometimes delay projects for months. Now that it has completed the structural design and approval work upfront, RBI Solar expects that it will be better able to serve its clients. With the structural permits already obtained, it will be easier to secure project permits. The PC will allow for expedited permit approvals for some projects. This is especially important for school projects, where access is only possible when school is not in session.
