HOA’s are rampantly denying and punishing homeowners that want to get solar panels. I move to deny the ability of any HOA to regulate the installation of solar panels on the roof of any single family home. Currently there are a large number of homes that could only get solar panels on the front of the houses but the HOA’s are not allowing this in most neighborhoods. These homes are denied access to clean and renewable energy because of this and as a result more coal needs to be burned which leads to more pollution and toxic waste. This waste is hazardous to many homeowners affected by the coal ash spills and little is done to let them know that they might be at risk. Renewable energy is one way to combat this but archaic ideas about what looks good on the top of a house are stopping progress. If our roofs never had shingles and always had solar panels then they would be normal to us and no one would say anything. Just like if the shingles we had been using were circles all along and someone said “Let’s use squares!” No one would agree because people do not like change. But it’s a meaningless thing to hold on to, that shingles are attractive and that we need to see them. In 20 years the houses without solar panels will look strange. Let’s be a part of progress. Not stay in the past for the sake of tradition or comfortability.
