Tell Tucson Mountain Reserve HOA: NO Solar Fees!
Arizona’s solar access law protects the rights of residents who want to install solar systems on their properties. This means that local governments and homeowner associations (HOAs) cannot block or impose unreasonable restrictions on prospective solar homeowners.
In spite of this law, the Tucson Mountain Reserve HOA in northwest Tucson is charging $1,500 in fees for residents who want to have solar panels installed.
Please sign this petition to support Tucson Mountain HOA resident Carol Fiore, who was denied her appeal to waive the charges. Urge the HOA board to drop these fees and abide by Arizona’s solar access law.

“We are writing to express our deep concerns about the HOA’s $1,500 fees for residents who wish to install solar panels. As you are aware, the HOA recently denied an appeal from resident Carol Fiore to waive these unreasonable charges, who subsequently canceled her solar installation.
Arizona’s solar access law prohibits HOAs from imposing unreasonable restrictions that would alter the efficiency or cost of solar devices (see: A.R.S. 33-439 and Senate Bill 1254, section 33-1816). We urge you to reverse course and drop these exorbitant solar fees in order for members of your community to retain the right to install solar energy on their property.”
