The Planning Board and Energy Management Committee met Monday night to continue working on a town bylaw governing solar installations, but came away without an agreement, said Planning Board chairman Jay Ryder. He said the board feels that a developer seeking to build a commercial solar farm or residents wanting to install ground-mounted panels in their yards should go through the town’s regular permitting process, which requires a site-plan review and approval from the Planning board. But he said the energy committee may bring its own proposal to the annual Town Meeting May 13.
