Understand your HOA’s rules and regulations

Before starting the process of installing solar panels, it’s essential to become familiar with your HOA’s rules and regulations regarding solar installations [1]. Review the community’s architectural guidelines carefully to find out if there are any restrictions on solar panel installations. In some cases, you may need to make adjustments to your installation plans to comply with these guidelines [2]. Momentum Solar’s experienced team can help you understand these guidelines and tailor a solar installation plan that fits within your HOA’s requirements.

Know your state’s solar access laws

Many states have solar access laws that protect homeowners’ rights to install solar energy systems on their properties [3]. These laws often limit the extent to which HOAs can restrict solar installations. Familiarize yourself with your state’s solar access laws to ensure that your rights as a homeowner are protected during the process of installing solar panels with Momentum Solar.
