Summary: 

Similar to laws in other states,  Idaho's solar easement provision does not create an automatic right to sunlight. Rather, the law allows parties to enter into solar easement contracts voluntarily for the purpose of ensuring adequate exposure of a solar-energy system. The easement is transferred with the property title. 

Only a few Idaho communities have passed solar easement ordinances.
