HOA's can make going solar difficult. Unfortunately, Kansas is not yet a right to solar state, so HOA's can still dictate whether or not they will allow solar in their communities.
What we have found is that most of these HOA's just need to be educated on our processes. We have specific protocols in place when adding solar to an HOA community to preserve the value of each home & the community collectively.
The first thing we need to do is compile a petition of homeowners who would like to have solar approved in their neighborhood. We will then take it from there & meet with the HOA board to educate them on our processes.
We have a very high success rate getting solar approved by HOA's using this method.
