Laurent Hodges, Patrick Huelman, Jeffrey D. Benson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A new methodology for protecting solar access on existing lots and in new subdivisions is described. A sample easement consistent with the requirements of Iowa's solar access easement law is included. This methodology minimizes the restrictions on the burdened lot while affording excellent protection for the lot with the solar system. It provides the owner of the burdened lot with graphic descriptions of the restrictions imposed by the easement.
