Solar Rights – Dealing with a popup with the new DC Regs

“Guess what? I get to be patient zero with the new DC regulations for the R-4 zoning laws, new pop up rules, and solar rights.

I’m scared…. Very Scared. I don’t want to ruin the hard work of everybody who came before me.

How can I get a reputable shadow study (DCRA said I can create one in google sketch up or similar)?? I have a solar study from one of the companies who bid on the install. The company doing the install is having trouble completing a solar study. One of the first companies said it will decrease the productivity of the system by at least 30%.

Who can help me protect the solar system? Is there anybody I can contact who was involved with the solar rights issue / wants to be involved with this new law in practice?”

I was the victim of a recent robbery (one of a number you’ve blogged about). As if dealing with authorities and insurance in the aftermath wasn’t enough, we keep getting recent visits from a woman who has been coming by a few times a day, unannounced. Not knowing who she was and not expecting anyone (especially at the hour she was here) we did not answer. After incessantly ringing the doorbell on her 4th or 5th visit in the last 24 hours, I finally answered it. She asked to speak with one of the people I live with, and then the other. She acted like they were already familiar, when in fact I knew she did not know them. When I explained I was the homeowner and invited her to introduce herself, she refused, and would not discuss ‘confidential’ matters with me. She said she would keep returning until she reached them.
