PHSZD zoning permits applications in the 2023 backlog—the percentage of non-conforming, incomplete applications and the number of manual corrections. The Commission received a verbal recommendation from a Solar Company Manager. Their company, Solar World, has issued procedures for when there are two or more solar applications to the same permitting entity for the same address but differing companies. The company requires the property owner to send certified letters to the vendor and the district, giving authorization to proceed with the project.
