solar energy

The city's zoning ordinance includes a section on alternative energy systems that addresses wind and solar energy systems (Sec. 60-163.2). It defines "solar energy system," "ground-mounted panels," and "roof-mounted panels," and permits accessory ground- and roof-mounted systems in all districts. The code describes permit requirements, provides placement and design standards for both ground- and roof-mounted systems, and addresses aesthetics and glare.
