Thanks. The issue of HOAs and local governments restricting solar installations is troubling. We were lucky in several respects. We installed before the city required approval. And we live in a place that does not have an HOA. Only two of our neighbors can even see our solar panels. We, ourselves, have to go into a neighbor's back yard to get a look at them.

I happen to believe that the dark blue shade of solar panels is a great color. And I think that it can go well with a house. The stucco of our house is painted nearly-white and there are terra cotta colored trim areas. The roof is a pale pink terra cotta. The cobalt blue panels shimmer jewel-like on the rooftop. In our case it is the icing on the cake.

My hope is that HOAs would develop aesthetic standards and/or aesthetic approval processes.
