Within its City Code, Manson City has incorporated an entire chapter on access to solar energy. A major section within that chapter is one that outlines the requirements and process for obtaining solar access easements. The solar access regulatory board may grant these easements, subject to a number of requirements. One of those requirements includes filing a detailed application with the secretary of the planning and zoning commission, which includes a description of the solar collector to be used, a legal description of the solar access easement, and an explanation of how “the applicant has done everything reasonable to design and locate the collector in a manner to minimize the impact on development of servient estates.”
