Section: Conditions for deeming abandoned; legal action.

Statute: 40:55D-66.15

4. A small wind energy system that is out of service for a continuous 12-month period shall be deemed abandoned. The municipal zoning enforcement officer may issue a notice of abandonment to the owner of an abandoned small wind energy system. The owner shall have the right to respond to the notice of abandonment within 30 days from the receipt date. The municipal zoning enforcement officer shall withdraw the notice of abandonment and notify the owner that the notice has been withdrawn if the owner provides the municipal zoning enforcement officer with information demonstrating the small wind energy system has not been abandoned. If the small wind energy system is determined to be abandoned, the owner of the small wind energy system shall remove the wind generator from the tower at the owner's sole expense within three months of receipt of notice of abandonment. If the owner fails to remove the wind generator from the tower, the municipality may pursue a legal action to have the wind generator removed at the owner's expense. L.2009, c.244, s.4.
