The Village of Schaumberg’s Solar Access Protection law authorizes the creation and recording of solar skyspace easements across contiguous or nearby lots, tracts, or land to protect an existing or intended solar collector’s exposure to the sun from obstruction of buildings and trees. Further, the law requires building permit applicants for structures that will increase the consumption of airspace to certify in writing that no solar skyspace easement exists over the lot. If the Village determines that proposed construction will intrude upon an existing solar skyspace easement, no building permit shall be granted. Village of Schaumberg, IL, Code § 154.62(C).
