Solar Access Ordinance (Boulder, Colorado, USA)

In response to the diminishing supply and increasing cost of conventional energy resources, the City of Boulder has enacted an ordinance to protect the potential for the use of solar energy. The ordinance guarantees access to sunlight for homeowners and renters in the city. This is done by setting limits on the amount of permitted shading by new construction and requiring that new buildings be sited to provide good solar access.
