New Jersey solar zoning bills ready for final floor vote

The two bills that we profiled in Pro-solar bills to get NJ committee hearing on Thursday were released yesterday by the Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee.

Both are now in position for a final legislative vote by the full Assembly.

The identical measures would limit the ability of any municipality to frustrate the installations of solar-energy systems through zoning restrictions. 

They also prevent municipalities from imposing any fee that exceeds the municipality's processing costs for an application pertaining to the approval, installation, or operation of a solar-energy or small wind-energy system.

You can read the bill details--and see copies of the legislation--by clicking on the above link to Monday's post.
