City Council to Consider Solar Energy Incentives

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

In an effort to help homeowners conserve energy, the City Council is considering adopting incentives for builders to incorporate solar energy systems into new dwellings.

Council members this week directed city planners to devise a proposal containing several such incentives. One proposal would ease restrictions requiring that roof-mounted solar equipment on multifamily units be screened so that it cannot be seen by neighbors.

Planners say only four property owners in the city have installed solar panel systems this year in response to the energy crisis.
