O.C.G.A. 44-9-21 (2010)
44-9-21. Legislative findings and declaration of policy


The General Assembly finds that the use of solar energy in this state can help reduce the nation's reliance upon imported fuels and that solar energy development should, therefore, be encouraged. The General Assembly further finds that, as the use of solar energy devices increases, the possibility of future shading of such devices by buildings or vegetation will also increase. Therefore, the General Assembly declares that solar easements may be established to allow the owner of a solar energy device to negotiate for assurance of continued access to sunlight.
