Los Alamos County in New Mexico has incorporated a solar energy collection system section within its Code of Ordinances. According to the section, when a solar energy collection system is already installed on a parcel, accessory structures or vegetation on the abutting lot may not block the solar collector’s access to solar energy. Property owners must also file and record the solar system installation with the county clerk on the day the building permit for the improvement is issued.
