"A society built on green design, sustainable energy and closed loop systems, a civilization afloat on a cloud of efficient, non-toxic, recyclable technology." ~~Alex Nikolai Steffan



Green Tallahassee readers may remember last year's discussion about clothes lines and the state law that prevents homeowner's associations from banning them. This came up again at the recent Leon County's Climate Action Summit where folks in the audience seemed surprised that the law existed. S. 163.04 has been amended by this year's Legislature to further clarify this issue, and continues to reference, not only clothes lines, but solar collectors, also. The former height restriction of three stories for residential solar collectors.

"A property owner may not be denied permission to install solar collectors or other energy devices by any entity granted the power or
right in any deed restriction, covenant, or similar binding agreement to approve, forbid, control, or direct alteration of property with respect to residential dwellings and within the boundaries of a condominium unit."
(reference to condominiums is new.)
