Description

Virginia Energy Plan; covenants restricting solar energy collection devices. Clarifies that no condominium instruments may be amended to prohibit a property owner in a community association from installing a solar energy collection device on that owner's property except by agreement of unit owners of units to which two-thirds of the votes in the unit owners' association appertain, and no declaration may be amended to establish such a prohibition except by a two-thirds vote of the lot owners, unless otherwise provided in the condominium instruments or the declaration. The bill provides that a community association may establish reasonable restrictions concerning the size, place, and manner of placement of such solar energy collection devices on property designated and intended for individual ownership and use only if such restrictions do not decrease the efficiency of a solar energy collection device by an average of more than 15 percent per year. The bill provides that its provisions shall not be deemed to invalidate any reasonable restrictions concerning the size, place, and manner of placement of solar energy collection devices on property designated and intended for individual ownership and use if such restrictions were in effect on the effective date of the bill. Amends § 67-701, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
