Did you know that Florida law forbids any homeowners association, or any entity for that matter, from prohibiting you from installing solar energy devices on a Florida building? This was officially made into law with the “The Florida Solar Rights Act (CHAPTER 163.04 INTERGOVERNMENTAL PROGRAMS Florida Statutes).
The only thing that the homeowner’s association can do is set up requirements and restrictions for approval of your system installation by a licensed Solar installer.
Just to be clear, the homeowner’s association may not prevent you from installing the actual panels on the roof of your home. If they determine in their requirements the placement of the actual panels, they must allow for the solar panels to face within 45 degrees of due south.
The association cannot initiate any requirement that a system must be hidden out of site, or that the panels be screened from view by a fence or trees, or even on a remote roof location hidden from street. This will generally violate the statute.
One thing you can be sure of is that in any Homeowners Association requirements for the installation of solar panels, the association will ask for the install to be done by a licensed and insured reputable Solar Contractor like Go Solar Power.
