The solar energy system sub-section goes on to list a few conditions that an applicant must meet in order to have the system installed on a property parcel. Among these conditions are that the solar energy system must be located on the same lot as the principal use; the system must comply with all applicable building, plumbing, electrical and Town codes; and that no systems shall be permitted in setback areas.
