In its Code of Ordinances, Grand Forks, North Dakota has integrated a small section on Solar Access, Section 18-0307. The section states, “When a solar energy collection system is installed on a lot, accessory structures or vegetation on any abutting lot shall not be located so as to block the solar collector’s access to solar energy.” Section 18-0307 goes on to outline the portion of a solar collector that is protected by the ordinance and state that the requirements of the Solar Access section do not apply to “structures or vegetation existing in an abutting lot at the time of installation of the solar energy collection system.”
