Solar Access Permit A Portland property owner may submit an application for a solar access permit to protect solar access to a new or existing solar energy system located on the owner’s real property. The permit is used to restrict the shade cast by certain types of vegetation on neighboring properties.
Subdivision Requirements At least 80% of the lots must comply with one or more of the solar access design options provided--a basic site orientation for solar access, use of a solar building line to protect solar access, and/or a performance option in which a specific percentage of the building’s south wall is protected from shade.
