ARTICLE 2 – DEFINITIONS

Section 202 – Definitions

Power generator: A machine which burns fuel to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy.  (Generators with a capacity over 20 kW for private use require a special use permit under Section 425).

ARTICLE 4 – CRITERIA FOR SPECIAL USE PERMITS

Proposed new section:

Section 426 – Power Generators Greater than 20 kW Rated Capacity

A. Applicability: Power generators which have a rated capacity of greater than 20 kW, with the exception of generators that are used as a back-up power source at a municipally owned or operated building; a public utility; a medical facility; a commercial business; or any other facility required by state building code to provide back-up power, are allowed only upon the granting of a special use permit by the Zoning Board of Review.  Such use shall also undergo development plan review by the Planning Board under the provisions of Section 704.

B. Application Requirements:  Any application submitted under this Section shall include the following:

1. A site plan showing the location and dimensions of the proposed generator and distances to all property lines and existing structures, including those on adjoining lots.

2. Manufacturer’s specifications including rated capacity and noise levels, specifically the anticipated dBA levels at given distances from the generator.  These must include the dBA levels at the nearest property line and, if applicable, at the location of the nearest residence on an adjoining property.

3. A description of the applicant’s intended use schedule, both seasonally and daily.

C. Standards:  Prior to the approval of an application for a power generator with a rated capacity greater than 20 kW, the Zoning Board of Review shall determine that it meets the general criteria for a special use permit.  The standards below shall also apply:

1. Screening: The generator must be adequately screened from view from nearby roads and properties by means of fencing or vegetative screening, as approved by the Panning Board.  In no case shall a generator be located within the front setback of a property, as defined in Section 202.
