Connecticut Town Authorities Seek LED and Solar Project Regulations

News Source: 

Hopkinton, a town in Connecticut, U.S. discussed last week at a workshop enacting zoning ordinances to regulate commercial LED signs and solar energy projects, reported The Westerly Sun.

Solar energy project regulations were high on the workshop agenda because of the lack or related regulations.

The council also discussed commercial LED signs that were prohibited by the town’s dark sky ordinance because of their intense brightness.

One local gas station was mistakenly granted a certificate of occupancy to the remodeled Spicer gas station in Ashaway that had already installed a LED sign advertising gas prices. Another gas station, Best Way that recently opened on route 216 was denied a permit for similar LED gas price sign.

The town council eventually allowed both gas stations to keep their signs because both were static rather than animated.

“We considered issuing a waiver on the two of them temporarily being allowed to use the signs they spent money on, until we completely re-do the ordinance on LEDs,” said Town council President Frank Landolfi. “The kind of sign they have is a static sign, and the council is thinking they’ll allow static signs.”
