LOS ANGELES (AP) - Two out-of-state firms are suing Los Angeles, claiming a city panel violated the law in rejecting their plan to install an array of 3,500 solar cells on the northeast edge of the San Fernando Valley.

The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday (https://lat.ms/1nrzvlV ) that PLH and Foothill Solar are seeking to overturn a decision by the North Valley Area Planning Commission. The panel said in May that the firms’ application was incomplete because it lacked a city permit requiring neighbors to be notified about a public hearing on such projects.

The companies claim that state law exempted them from having to get that permit.

The newspaper says some residents in Lake View Terrace worried that the expanse of solar cells would clash with the area’s tranquil, rural landscape.
