Can HOA's Prevent you from Going Solar?

Updated: Apr 17

Many states have enacted laws to protect homeowners' rights to install solar energy systems, including provisions that limit the extent to which HOA's can restrict solar panel installations. These laws, known as solar rights laws, vary from state to state but generally aim to promote the adoption of solar energy by ensuring that homeowners have the freedom to install solar panels on their properties.

In most cases, homeowners may need to seek approval from their HOA before installing solar panels, and the HOA may impose certain conditions or requirements. However, if an HOA's restrictions on solar panel installations conflict with state solar access laws, the state laws typically take precedence.

Before investing in a solar energy system, homeowners should carefully review their HOA's governing documents to understand the HOA's guidelines and reach out to us for assistance in getting your HOA's approval!
