The Upper St. Clair commissioners are scheduled to vote on an ordinance amendment for solar panels in the township.
A Penn Future representative said residential use of solar panels is on the rise. He said there is plenty of sun in Pittsburgh to produce energy.
The amendment will restrict where residents can put solar panels on their property, and require screening and setbacks. Solar panels on the front of a roof would be required to be parallel to the roof and no panels would be allowed to go over the height of the roof.
Signage and advertising would also be prohibited.
Commissioners are scheduled to vote on the ordinance amendment on Monday, Jan. 7.
The compilation of the ordinance amendment was funded through a grant.
