    It seems the APA sees solar projects as ‘not buildings’. This kind of makes sense but cell towers are not buildings either. Nor are windmills. Nor are power poles and lines. But these are regulated. They are tall, unlike solar, but if solar isn’t a building, how do these other things get defined as buildings?

    I’m confused and just curious to understand this.
