Will you see solar panels in your neighborhood? Maybe, or maybe not depending on whether there is a homeowners association and what the restrictions for your neighborhood say – but it may not matter for long. Pennsylvania State Representative Tom Houghton has recently indicated he intends to put forth legislation which would prohibit Homeowners Associations from enforcing restrictions which impede or prohibit the use of solar panels.
Do solar panels help or hurt the aesthetics and value of a neighborhood? Will this increase green building and marketability of homes? It will be interesting to watch how this legislation unfolds. View a recent press release and Rep. Houghton’s request for co-sponsorship describing the legislation.
