Solar Friendly Neighborhoods during the "development period"

There are many new neighborhood developments all across North Texas. The control of the HOA (Home Owners Association) for these neighborhoods remains with the developer until the last lot is sold. This time period is referred to as the "development period". By Texas legislation, HOAs cannot prevent homeowners from installing solar energy devices. However, there is an exception in the legislation that allows the neighborhood developer to block a homeowner from installing solar energy devices if the neighborhood is in the "development period". While on the surface, this may seem like a relatively short time period, in many cases the "development period" can extend many years, and in some cases decades.

We are trying to help better inform potential home buyers of neighborhood developments that will allow solar energy device installations while in the "development period" by compiling this information using a "crowd sourced" approach.

We are asking for everyone's help to gather information. If you live in, or near, a new neighborhood, please contact the neighborhood's HOA and ask if this neighborhood will allow an individual homeowner the choice to install solar energy devices. Then provide the data you have collected by entering it into this form. Your assistance is GREATLY appreciated.

Please submit entries for as many neighborhoods for which you have, or can find, information. If you need to modify or update information for a previously submitted entry, please resubmit and we will use the most current entry.
