University of Missouri’s Law Expert Receives Funds for the Improvement of Solar Energy Laws


Columbia, MO – September 29, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — In today’s time where the increasing cost of energy and the negative effects of climate change has been a concern to most citizens, the demand for solar power energy sources has progressively increased. One of the issues that possible solar energy users see is the lack of local and state laws to implement the proper use of solar energy. To fix this problem, University of Missouri’s Law Expert has started to draft new model ordinances and modules that will make it more efficient for the locals to use solar power.

One of the important issues that must be addressed is when families started to consider new solar panels on their roofs, their neighbor must not build a 2nd story on their house or plant any tree that may shade the solar panel from the sun. This means that proper guidelines and clearer model language are give to state and local officials of the government to make it trouble-free for the citizens to protect their access to solar power in their properties.

The new ordinances will be drafted to allow easy adaptation into the already existing zoning codes of the state. This will also include new set of optional terms designed to encourage developers to consider the use of solar panels when constructing new real estate developments.

The funding for this project will come from SolarTech’s $52,800 grant, a non-profit industry company with the purpose to eradicate the cost-barriers and promote the growth of solar markets in United States. SolarTech’s Solar 3.0 invention has just won a $2.5 million grant from United States Department of Energy to invent model codes, rule, standards, and processes that will lessen the deployment times and expenses for installation of solar panels.

SolarTech offers the right path to make it easier for everyone to use solar power with better tools. This will make it easier for the industry to implement efficient solar access at the least possible expenses, improving the growth of solar energy users locally and in the state.
