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

Hi PopVille,
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?

Buying Real Estate with Solar Panels

Just met with a sales rep from SolarCity, and I’m thinking over the option of going solar with their panels installed on my roof. However, they require a minimum 20 year agreement, and I am very unlikely to remain in this rowhouse that long. Curious what opinions people have on buying a house with existing solar panels installed. Is that a plus? A minus? No big deal?

I’d also welcome any feedback anyone has who has previously worked with SolarCity.

Wind power provider?

Hey PoP forum—
I’ve been sourcing my electricity from Clean Currents for the last year or so, but earlier this month they went out of business. I’d like to transfer my business to a new alternative provider but am not sure who to go with.

Do you use a wind/solar energy provider? If so, which one do you use and do you like them?
