Merrill & McGeary drafted the following guide for Condominium Trustees and Unit Owners who are interested in solar projects.
SOLAR PV SYSTEM GUIDE
This Guide explains what a Condominium Trustee or unit owner should know in a general sense about the operation of a Condominium and the decision making process before any attempt to have a solar pv system installed on the roof of a Condominium building or on Condominium grounds.
The Guide responds to the following questions:
A. How is a Condominium organized?
B. Who makes decisions for the Condominium Association?
C. What approval is required for the installation of the solar pv system?
D. If Condominium common funds are to be expended for the installation of the solar pv system, who must approve the funding and what legal requirements must be met to do so?
E. How might a solar pv system proponent approach the Trustees and win their support and that of the unit owners?
