  • A solar energy system that conforms to all applicable state fire, structural, electrical, and other building codes as adopted or amended by the City and paragraph (iii) of subdivision (c) of Section 714 of the Civil Code, as such section or subdivision may be amended, renumbered, or redesigned from time to time.
  • A solar energy system that is installed on a single or duplex family dwelling. \
  • A solar panel or module array that does not exceed the maximum legal building height as defined by the Hawaiian Gardens Municipal Code.
