This week the NJ Pinelands Commission adopted a set of amendment to its development rules to allow solar power facilities in more locations. Previously Pinelands regulations permitted solar as a “primary use” in growth and development planning areas, though only as an “accessory use” in preservation, forest, or agricultural areas. In short this meant that you could build a large scale solar farm on vacant land in growth and development designated areas. However in preservation, forest, or agriculture areas you could only install solar as an accessory to the current use of the property, namely to provide power to a home or business located there.
