I want to make my home more energy efficient – I’d like to explore solar and wind power. Can a Historic Property or one in a Historic District be approved for such technology?

The Commission is very supportive of homeowner’s efforts to make their historic homes as comfortable and energy efficient as possible – without substantially impinging on their character and style. If your planned solar or wind installation can be seen from the street, a Certificate of Appropriateness will be required. That said, the Commission will make every effort to work with you to find a way to support your improvements.
