A: No, PE Stamps (both electrical and structural) are sold as a separate service.
Q: How do I know if I need PE Stamps?
A: We recommend that you become familiar with the local AHJ’s (Authorities Having Jurisdiction) that you are working in. However, our professional network is familiar with the most popular AHJs. The first step of any Permit Design where an AHJ is not familiar to us is an “In-depth AHJ Study”, during which we reach out to the jurisdiction to acquire any information we can collect over the phone.

Q: What if I want to change the design AFTER it has been purchased?
A: Simply send a message to the professional design firm via the GreenLancer platform. Leave a message and upload files, and your message will be sent directly to the solar professional. You will receive an email once the changes have been made. Additional charges may apply for system design changes and as-builts.
Q: What happens if my solar permit gets rejected by the AHJ?
A: If rejection occurs, simply upload the RED LINED permit design and other comments from the plan reviewer into the Discussion Tab of the service that was originally ordered. These revisions are typically completed free of charge.
