The Missouri General Assembly recently passed legislation prohibiting Homeowners Associations from banning solar in their neighborhoods. The bill (SB 745) needs Governor Mike Parson’s signature to become law. Contact Governor Mike Parson today to sign the bill and grant Missouri homeowners the right to go solar!
The act states that no deed restriction, covenant, or similar binding agreement running with the land shall limit or prohibit the installation of solar panels or solar collectors on the rooftop of any property or structure. However, the homeowner’s association may adopt reasonable rules regarding the placement of solar panels to the extent that those rules do not prevent the installation of the solar PV system, impair its functioning, restrict its use, or adversely affect the cost or efficiency of the solar PV system.
Basically, your Homeowners Association can no longer block your dream to generate your own energy for your home and family.
Here’s what you can do to secure your energy rights in your neighborhood.
- Send Governor Parson a note to sign SB 745.
- Tell your Homeowners Association that the law is effective January 1, 2023.
- Advise your Association leadership to change their bylaws to comply with the new law.
Now is a great time to become energy independent! Federal and local utility incentives can reduce the cost of a solar PV system by 30% in 2022, but the federal incentive phases down next year. Contact us to get started.
