Building Permit Fee Waiver for Renewable Energy Technologies
The City of Asheville waives fees for building permits and plan reviews for certain renewable energy technologies and green building certifications for mixed-use commercial buildings. Waivers for building permit fees may apply to the following designations: HealthyBuilt Home Certification, Energy Star Rating, geothermal heat pumps, solar-energy systems, wind turbines, storm water (gray water) collection device for reuse in yard sprinkler or elsewhere. The city will also reduce plan review fees by 50% for any building that is seeking LEED certification. Regular fees must be paid in full but will be rebated upon certification. These fee waivers apply to mixed-use commercial buildings if they include residential space. Contact: Building Safety Department, P.O. Box 7148, Asheville, NC 28802; 828-259-5628
