This model ordinance provides a template to help cities and counties in Georgia draft development regulations for different solar energy system types and sizes. Provisions address purpose, definitions, use permissions, and use-specific standards for rooftop, building-integrated, and three different sizes of ground-mounted solar energy systems.
