HOA’s have very little authority over a solar installation on your property, thanks to Colorado Revised Statue (CRS) 38-30-168 which states “A covenant, restriction, or condition, contained in any deed, contract, security instrument, or other instrument affecting the transfer or sale of, or any interest in, real property that effectively prohibits or restricts the installation or use of a renewable energy generation device is void and unenforceable.” There are some exceptions to this, but for the most part, Colorado State Law is on the side of personal property when it comes to solar installations.
