I just saw this and had to shake my head and laugh.
"But I put it on a south-facing roof!"
New build erected next to existing property?
Bet there's no recourse for compromising the efficacy of your solar installation if somebody does this
or maybe it was cloudy when they installed it
But I bet they got their tax credit.
No doubt. I remember reading about Ontario programs a few years ago where the install was completely free thanks to so-called Green Initiatives. Not only were the panels and install free, but they would be a well-above-market guaranteed rate for every kwh you put back in the grid. Being a gov't program, it has to be equally accessible, so if you're this guy... why not? Even if it is horribly inefficient, if it costs you nothing and generates something, you're ahead, right?
ps. I say "so called Green Initiatives" not because I'm in any way against incentivising solar... I totally am. But there's an environmental cost to producing, shipping, and installing solar so when it is installed in such a clearly inadvisable place, I'd hardly say that's a clear net positive outcome from the environment's perspective.
There is always a roof damage risk, and if the panels are perceived as not aesthetic the home takes a valuation hit. And by the way, that looks like one difficult installation.
