Ashley Woods West resident says California Solar Rights Act protects his right to use the passive solar door
When Frank Sigrist installed a passive solar garage door in his Granite Bay house, he forgot to submit an application to his homeowner’s association.
He filed the required documents a month or so later, thinking he wouldn’t be denied permission because the $10,000 state-of-the-art door is energy efficient and aesthetically pleasing — besides, the garage sits far back off the street in this upper-end gated community.
“It’s not going to be a big deal,” Sigrist said.
But he was wrong.
Nah, who would have thunk it?
But board members are reasonable people, acting reasonably, right?
