Energy Independence vs. Homeowners Associations

Recently, I went to a Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce event at a local company, Solar Energy USA of Atlanta.  Back in my teen years, I actually won the Grand Award at the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair with a project based around solar energy.  That win allowed me to compete in the International Science and Engineering Fair, which was a phenomenal experience because it brought me to my first encounters with science vs. human emotion / established industry / etc.

During my conversations with some of the folks at Solar Energy USA, I found that photovoltaics have advanced a LOT in the last 25+ years.  We also had a discussion about homeowner’s associations, including mine at Polo Golf & Country Club.

Lo and behold, just a few weeks after that conversation, Vickery Lakes subdivision in Cumming, Georgia is in ABC News regarding this exact subject.  Here’s the article here.

As a former high school debater, I could take either side of this story, gather some evidence and argue my case passionately.  I’m not going to do that here, but I would like your opinions and thoughts just to gauge the general feeling on the subject.  You can comment here at or go to my Facebook Page and comment on the thread there as well.  If you’d like to check out the discussion on the Georgia Tech forum, just go to The Hive.
