It is still much too difficult to go solar for millions of Americans, in particular those who live in condos -- me included, although I have swum against the tide and have persevered anyway, I hope 🤞.
The cohousing community that I live in -- Highline Crossing Cohousing -- here in Littleton, Colo. is FINALLY getting solar after a one-year wait for the installation and, prior to that, 18 months of me, and several other residents here in this community, working toward persuading our community to add a 20 kW solar system.
Precisely 10 years ago to this month, REC Solar workers were on the rooftop of my Aurora, Colo. home installing a 5.5 kW solar system that is still there. The system outlasted me -- or, at least my marriage -- and is still there, pumping out clean, green electricity for the residents who bought the home from me and my now ex-wife in November of 2015, which we sold following a August 2015 divorce.
So, after a year and half of working on it, I -- along with several other hard working members of my HOA community here in Littleton, Colo. -- have persuaded our neighbors to go solar!
