solar energy

The city's building code states that in order to prevent uncontrolled proliferation, solar energy systems require a building permit. The code sets location, screening, and color standards for ground-mounted systems; it sets height and location standards for roof-mounted systems. Owners may appeal in case of unnecessary hardship (§. 18-726 et seq.).
