Homeowners associations and solar access in Arizona

Homeowners associations (HOAs) have often tried to prevent homeowners from going solar in the name of aesthetics. Fortunately, Arizona law prevents HOAs from doing so.

Homeowners associations in Arizona

Arizona law prohibits HOAs from outright banning  homeowners from installing solar panels. HOAs can create some limits with regard to solar panel installations, like requiring approval by a design review board. These limitations cannot prohibit solar panels outright or effectively prohibit them by making solar too expensive or complicated to install. Courts have upheld this law.
