The D.C. Council is considering two bills that could help expand solar access and strengthen solar rights in the District. The Solar Cooperative Association Expansion Amendment Act of 2017 (B22-0229) would prevent Homeowner Associations and other residential groups from arbitrarily restricting solar deployment in the District. The Solar Ready Roofs and Sustainable Development Amendment Act of 2017 (B22-0437) would create new requirements to encourage rooftop solar deployment on new development and buildings undergoing “substantial” renovation. Solar United Neighbors of D.C. testified in support of both bills at a December 2017 Council hearing, but the Council has yet to move forward on either bill.
