POA

  • There have been instances where the rules of a Homeowner Association (HOA) and Property Owner Association (POA) created barriers to the installation of solar energy equipment.
  • The State Legislature addressed this situation by passing House Bill 362. This law amended Chapter 202 of the Texas Property Code by adding Sections 202.010 and 202.011.
  • The law defines the limited circumstances under which an HOA or POA can prohibit or require the relocation of a solar energy installation.
  • Solar San Antonio prepared a checklist that a home owner, business owner, or an association can use in determining whether a proposed solar energy installation can be prohibited or modified by the association.
