Within its Zoning Chapter, the City of Meriden in Connecticut has incorporated a separate section outlining the few regulations for wind energy conservation systems and solar devices. According to the section, screening on a roof to enclose mechanical equipment may be modified to allow access to solar heating devices. The section also goes on to require that solar heating devices do not occupy more than 10% of the yard area and that any new construction be mindful of solar devices on adjoining properties so that the maximum effort to retain solar access can be made.
