SB 1008 - This act specifies that no deed restriction, covenant, or similar binding agreement running with the land shall limit or prohibit the installation of solar panels or solar collectors, as defined in the act, on the rooftop of any property or structure.

A homeowners' association may adopt reasonable rules regarding the placement of solar panels or solar collectors to the extent those rules do not prevent the installation of the device or adversely affect its functioning, use, cost, or efficiency.

This act shall apply only with regard to rooftops that are owned, controlled, and maintained by the owner of the property or structure.

This act is identical to HB 2526 (2020), provisions in HCS/SS/SCS/SB 594 (2020), provisions in HCS/SS/SB 618 (2020), provisions in HCS/SB 664 (2020), and provisions in HCS/SCS/SB 725 (2020).
