Palos Verdes Estates HOA Wants $200 For Solar Panel Sign-Off

We've got all the makings of a classic NIMBY tale down in the Palos Verdes Estates, where a snooty homeowners association is doing battle with a tenacious solar panel peddler. Bradley Bartz owns ABC Solar, and he objects to the policies of the "quasi-governmental" Palos Verdes Homes Association ("considered by many to be stodgy"), which require a $200 fee and a review by the architects of the "infamously fussy art jury" for any homeowner who wants to install solar panels on his house, reports the Daily Breeze.
Sunlight may be free. But capturing it costs in Privatopia.
