Can an HOA prevent me from going Solar? Colorado says NO.

Solar & Homeowners Associations (HOA)

In truth, dealing with HOAs or Metro Districts is fairly a straight forward process for us.   We just need the contact information of your HOA and we'll do the submission to the HOA for your solar.

Can the HOA deny solar energy systems for a homeowner in an HOA?  NO.

Colorado law prevents the HOA from preventing you from going solar! Colorado law (C.R.S. 38-30-168) addresses the authority of HOAs to regulate the installation and use of "solar energy devices" which are defined as ". . . a solar collector or other device or a structural design feature of a structure that provides for the collection of sunlight and which comprises part of a system for the conversion of the sun's radiant energy into thermal, chemical, mechanical or electrical energy." Solar panels clearly fall within this definition.

The actual law states that any HOA with a covenant restriction stating that solar panels are prohibited or restricted in any way is unenforceable under Colorado law (C.R.S. 38-30-168).


Give us a call and we'll handle the HOA submission.
