Town of Addis Zoning Ordinance; Passive Solar Energy

Zoning    Solar Energy   
Town Of Addis   
| Suburban | Rural
In its zoning ordinance, the Town of Addis lists and defines its different zoning districts. It makes only a small mention of solar energy systems, specifically passive ones, in Section 6. There, the ordinance describes that all structures in the Town of Addis shall maximize passive solar energy systems and shall not require a variance if the system infringes upon required yard areas. However, the ordinance does not specify design or placement standards for these passive solar energy systems, presenting a barrier to its implementation.
