San Francisco will soon become one of the first big cities in the U.S. to mandate solar power for new buildings, thanks to new legislation that is set to go into effect in January. Of course, to landlords not everything about this is sunny as the city mandates yet another obstacle for any new construction.
The rule will make the city by the bay one of the first big cities in the U.S. to mandate solar and other Calif. cities are expected to follow San Francisco’s lead.
According to a recent Forbes article, “San Francisco’s new mandate builds on a prior city law that says 15% of the rooftop space on all new small and medium-sized buildings needs to be “solar-ready” (unshaded and unobstructed). The new rule now says those solar-ready spaces will need to have solar installed.”
Dean Sperling Law helps Calif-based landlords stay on top of the latest breaking legal news and resolve all disputes with their best interests in mind—and help turn their cloudiest days…sunny.
