Hello. I was reviewing our handbook recently and I specifically looked up our policies on solar rooftop panels and noted that there is only one: that they are not allowed. Could we have some discussion on this? Is the concern... liability of some kind? Since the townhouses have connected roofs? Is there a concern about the houses not being able to handle the equipment that goes inside the house (to regulate the power of the panels, etc)? Has this policy been updated recently to match new advances with solar panels? Maybe its not the case anymore that the equipment is bulky or a poor fit for these homes. I would like to see a bit of discussion about this. Can we revisit the policy? Take a look at what new tech is out there and give homeowners more choices in how they power their homes?

This is a great issue. I remember getting a notification about this prohibition policy about 10 years ago before I moved away with the army. I remember No vote on this or notification that this policy would be enacted. I think it should be put on the next HOA meeting agenda, and the agenda ADVERTISED by snail mail and email to the community. I would love to invest in solar power.

However, I believe there has been updated policies on solar panels posted under "governance" on the Documents Page. here https://www.tartanvillage.com/documents
