CalGreen and “Permit Sonoma”

The county requires the use of a listed an ICC certified CalGreen Special Inspector to both review your project prior to permit submittal, as well as to perform a final inspection after the construction is substantially complete.

At CalGreen Energy Services we have been involved in the design and construction industry for many decades. We understand the intent behind the CalGreen

requirements. As a result, we are able to critically review your project and understand where some the requirements don’t apply. When submitting for permit we clearly state for the permit reviewers why they are not applicable for your project.

Please note that the Permit Sonoma Master Checklists linked to below mistakenly has every box on the checklist already checked. This error implies that you must meet every single requirement on the checklist.

This is NOT what the code requires and you should not blindly submit your project with every box checked. THIS is why you need someone very knowledgeable in CalGreen to help you with your permit submittal.

There are company’s out there who will take your money and submit this checklists without properly un-checking the boxes that you are note required to comply with. Once you submit the checklist you are financially obligated to pay for every item on there when the permit is approved!
