Go Green Initiative
This initiative promotes environmental sustainability through the exemption of building permit fees for the installation of solar panels.
Eligible Applicants - Any for-profit business compliant with State, County, and Town requirements. All taxes and fees must be current at the time of application and remain current as a requirement of the grant. A claw-back provision applies.
Geographic Boundary - All commercial, industrial, and residential properties in Town.
Open Period - Applications are accepted on a continual basis. This program will end on June 30, 2020, unless reauthorized by the Mayor and Council.
Limitation - This initiative does not waive any permit or development related fees imposed by the State, County, WSSC, or any agency outside of the Town.
Illustration - Installation of solar panels may incur Prince George’s County building permit fees of five-hundred dollars ($500). The Town’s building permit fees are 75% of the County’s fees or three-hundred seventy-five dollars ($375). Waiving the Town’s building permit fee provides a benefit of $375.
All programs and initiatives are subject to funding availability and the Town reserves the right to amend, modify or cancel this program at any time with or without notice.
1. The program will be promoted through the Town’s established outreach programs.
2. Applications will be reviewed and approved by the staff team.
