Solar Installations

Builders and contractors may find out the city's requirements regarding the installation of solar photovoltaic systems through these checklists:

The city's All 4 Business Initiative is designed to improve customer service and access to information and streamline the development review and permitting processes to facilitate projects of all sizes. Visit to submit permits, plans and other development documents electronically or you may submit the documents in person.

The city's Unified Development Ordinance assures that solar and wind systems are permitted in all zone districts, subject to underlying zone restrictions (see Table 3.2-1, Section 3.3.5 and Section 3.3.6). For more information on zoning in your area, contact the Planning Customer Service Desk at 303.739.7217 or [email protected].

The Aurora Places comprehensive plan adopted in 2018 contains a thriving environment community principle, with stewardship of water, energy and natural open spaces being essential to the well-being and success of residents and the community.

New home builders are required to provide a minimum of eight "conservation" point as part of Residential Design Standards implemented in 2012. Solar installations count for three of these points.
