Conservation Easement Resulting from Community Solar Development

When a remaining portion in the Agricultural zoning district develops a community solar energy generating system (CSEGS), a permanent conservation easement is required on the rest of the property not developed for community solar facilities and associated infrastructure. The draft sample conservation easement template below provides information on what the easement agreement is likely to include. This is just a sample. Each actual, individual easement will be prepared by the County staff following site plan approval by the Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission.
