Homeowners associations and solar access in Pennsylvania
Homeowners associations (HOAs) typically establish rules for a neighborhood’s aesthetic and sometimes attempt to restrict your ability to go solar. Unfortunately, Pennsylvania does not have rules that prevent HOAs from stopping you from going solar.

Pennsylvania has not passed any laws to protect a homeowner’s right to install solar on their home. Nor are homeowners able to negotiate solar easements to protect their panels’ exposure to sunlight.
