On January 16, 2010, just prior to leaving office as Governor, Jon Corzine signed into law what I am going to refer to as the "solar farm bill" (P.L. 2009, c. 213), which authorizes a person who owns preserved farmland to install and operate biomass, solar or wind energy generation facilities, structures and equipment on the farm for the purpose of generating power or heat.  Among other things, this bill also adds to the list of permitted activities that may be conducted on commercial farms "the generation of power or heat from biomass, solar, or wind energy" and, as such, it will serve as a nice companion to a recent amendment to the Municipal Land Use Law (P.L. 2009, c. 35), which allows a “renewable energy facility” to be located on a parcel or parcels of land owned by the same person comprising at least 20 contiguous acres within every municipal industrial zoning district, signed into law by the former Governor in March of last year.
