City of Albany Zoning Ordinance; Section 375-93- Solar Energy Equipment

Zoning    Solar Energy

Urban | Suburban |
Within its Zoning Ordinance, the City of Albany outlines its solar energy systems requirements in its own section, ยง 375-93. In it, the City requires that any person who wishes to install a solar energy system in a C-1 Neighborhood Commercial District shall have the installation reviewed by the Planning staff prior to the issuance of the building permit. This process will increase the amount of time and administrative requirements necessary to install these systems, becoming a barrier to their implementation.
