The following requirements apply to all commercial cannabis cultivation in the County:
1. No generator shall be used for any cultivation activities, including pumping, except as an emergency backup to another power source. The term “emergency”, for purposes of this provision, means a temporary outage of the primary power source due to circumstances that are verifiably beyond the permittee’s control and unrelated to non-payment of a utility or other vendor providing or servicing the primary power source.
2. The permittee shall have the burden of establishing that there was a verifiable “emergency” requiring the use of a generator.
3. Any generator providing temporary, emergency power to the premises shall be:
a. Set back a minimum of seventy-five (75) feet from the closest property line separating parcels that are not contiguously owned or leased;
b. In compliance with the County’s noise ordinance; and
c. Permitted by the Building Department if required by a county or state standard. Permitted installations shall be inspected for compliance prior to any use.
