One of the biggest myths about solar panels is that an HOA can prevent a homeowner from installing them.
This is simply not true.
An HOA cannot prevent a homeowner from installing solar panels on their home because the California Solar Rights Act of 1978 prevents them from doing so.
“[t]he purpose of the act is to promote and encourage the widespread use of solar energy systems and to protect and facilitate adequate access to the sunlight which is necessary to operate solar energy systems.”
Though the HOA cannot stop you, as a homeowner, you will need to submit your installation plans to your HOA, and they have 30 days to respond to those plans with any concerns. If you get a system through Aztec Solar, we will handle that communication for you because we take care of our solar customers from start to finish. We submit all of the appropriate paperwork and make sure there is a seamless process for the installation.
