How much does the permit cost for an electric car in Burbank?

I’m new to LA, and I’ve been looking at getting a house in Burbank (and then installing some solar panels!). I’ve heard that there are some awesome rebates for residents in this city, but I’m wondering if I also need some type of permit for my electric car? I’m absolutely in love with my Chevy Bolt EV! What is the cost of a permit for an electric car in Burbank?

How exciting! Burbank is a great city to own an electric car. Not only does it have the famous Porto’s Bakery and a massive IKEA, but the Burbank Water and Power offers rebates up to $500 for residential customers. And a multi-family residence could qualify for up to $1,000.
Here’s what we know about the cost of a permit for an electric car in Burbank:
  • While you don’t need a permit to own an EV, the City of Burbank Building Division does require a permit to install commercial charging stations or to install solar panels in your home.
  • Before installing solar panels, you may also need permission from your insurance and utility company. It’s also a good idea to look into any solar energy system restrictions. And you must also have a solar meter before you install your system.
  • For residential PV use in California, the permit fee is $450 for 15 kW or less. For more than 15kW it’s about $450 + $15 per kWh above 10 kWth. And in the city of Burbank, the max system allowance is for a 10Kw AC CEC rating.
  • California permit fee limits for solar thermal for 10 kW or less are also $450. And for more than 10 kWth, you’re looking at $450 + $15 per kWh above 10 kWth.
Now that you have a better idea about living your best EV life in Burbank, make sure your monthly car insurance bill isn’t raining on your parade. Did you know that most Americans overpay for their car insurance policy every month?
