Council Delays Decision For Solar Panels

MALIBU—At their meeting on September 23, the Malibu City Council pushed the decision for a mandate requiring solar panels for new developments to October 14, according to the city manager’s office.  

The reason the mandate was pushed to the upcoming meeting was because discussion on the chain store law lasted until midnight.

The mandate, which was put on the agenda at the request of Malibu Mayor Joan House and Councilmember Lou La Monte, asks the council to consider “the feasibility of requiring all new commercial development to include the installation of solar panels to provide power to the buildings,” according to the agenda.

If approved, the requirement would fall in line with an ordinance approved by the council on January 10, 2011, that suggests “voluntary measures for implementing environmental building processes, including the use of solar energy, in both residential and non-residential developments,” according to the agenda.

Should the council approve the mandate, Malibu would be the third city in the country to adopt a solar mandate. Lancaster, California, was the first city to adopt a similar plan earlier this year, with Sebastopol, California, following a few months later.
