South Miami has passed an ordinance for the installation of solar panels

South Miami has passed an ordinance for the installation of solar panels while constructing new buildings and renovating the existing ones in the region. The ordinance will come into effect from September 18, 2017. As per the rules, the new residential construction would require 175 square feet of solar panels to be installed per 1,000 square feet of sunlit roof area or 2.75 kW per 1,000 square feet of living space, whichever is less. Home renovations replacing more than 75 per cent of the structure or extending the structure by more than 75 per cent would require the installation of solar panels.
