So you want to put a solar panel on your condo...


Let's assume that :

1. You live in a condominium in New Jersey.

2. You're alarmed by the rising cost of your electric bill.

3. You heard that the state is helping pay the cost of installing solar panels on the roofs of some homes and businesses.

4. You figure this is one way to reduce your energy costs and help the environment.

5. But you've also heard that others, like you, have run into major roadblocks when trying to get permission from their condo association boards for the installation of a solar panel installation.
Did you know that a recent change in state law, prompted by complaints from condo owners, now grants you the right to erect solar panels on the roof of your individual unit?

Sounds great, right?

Hold on, partner. As always, it pays to read the fine print.

Jonathan H. Katz outlines the new law's opportunities--and a crucial limitation--in his post "Here comes the sun..." in Stark & Stark's New Jersey Law Blog.
