When faced with a request by a homeowner or condominium owner to install solar panels at your association, your Board needs to determine a number of things:
- Whether there are restrictive covenants or rules that prevent the installation;
- What “solar access rights” if any exist under their state’s laws;
- What if any restrictions the Association wants and can place on the installation, maintenance, repair, replacement and removal of the solar panels;
- Who is paying for any of the maintenance, repairs or removal of the solar panels.
