Residential Solar: Challenges and Opportunities

Carter Lavin David Hochschild December 6, 2016

One of Sustainable Rossmoor’s missions is to provide Rossmoor residents and Mutual Directors with information to help Rossmoor develop more sustainable practices. Recently some of the Mutual Boards have approved procedures for the installation of rooftop solar panels that are difficult, time-consuming and expensive for residents to follow. Sustainable Rossmoor is working to find solutions that meet with both Davis-Stirling requirements and the California Rooftop Solar Initiatives, so that homeowners who wish to have solar energy can have it.
