How does SolarAPP+ validate property addresses?
The SunSpec Alliance and the Orange Button coalition developed the AHJ Registry for street address validation, which cross-references map coordinates with AHJ territories based on 2020 Census shapefiles. This is the tool that NREL uses to validate address information. If your current government software platform already validates addresses, then SolarAPP would be duplicative of your existing address validation process. For newer addresses, it is likely that SolarAPP+ would reject those addresses as being associated with any AHJ, requiring the contractor to submit those projects via the traditional plan review approach.
