The City of Lomita in conjunction with the County of Los Angeles is committed to providing an expedited, streamlined permitting process to encourage the use of small residential rooftop solar energy systems. In compliance with the requirements of California Assembly Bill 2188, the City and County of Los Angeles has developed an expedited permit process for small residential rooftop solar energy systems on one- or two-family dwelling that involves either a photovoltaic system that is no larger than 10 kilowatts alternating current or a solar thermal system that is no larger than 30 kilowatts thermal.


All solar project must first come to the City Planning Counter to receive administrative approval. There is no fee for this Planning permit, however a business license is required.
