London Grove’s extensive Zoning Code incorporates a separate and informative section on solar energy systems, § 27-1839. According to § 27-1839, solar energy systems are permitted in all zoning districts as an accessory use, except that in two districts, “a special exception is required for the installation of any ground mounted solar energy system on any property less than 8,000 square feet.” The section goes on to list a number of development and design standards that are to be applied to the construction and installation of any solar energy system in all of its zoning districts. These standards include that an applicant must receive a building permit before installing any solar energy system on a parcel; specific requirements for ground mounted and roof mounted systems; and requirements for solar mechanical equipment associated with and necessary for the operation of the solar energy system.
