This section is included in your selections.

As a condition of approval of a tentative map, there may be imposed, in accordance with the provisions of Cal. Gov’t. Code § 66475.3 of the Subdivision Map Act, a requirement that the subdivider dedicate easements for the purpose of assuring that each parcel or unit in the subdivision shall have the right to receive sunlight across adjacent parcels or units in the subdivision for any solar energy system, as defined in Cal. Civ. Code § 801.5. In establishing such easements, consideration shall be given to feasibility, contour, configuration of the parcel to be divided, and cost. Required easements shall not result in reducing allowable densities or the percentage of a lot which may be occupied by a building or a structure under applicable planning and zoning in force at the time such tentative map is filed.
