Singer Bill to Protect Buyers of Homes with Solar Panels Clears Committee

The Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee advanced legislation today sponsored by Senator Robert Singer that would require sellers of single-family homes with solar panels to disclose the contact information for the business that installed the solar panels.

“It is not uncommon for the buyer of a property with solar panels to have trouble finding out how to contact the installer,” said Singer (R-30). “This bill would require the seller to disclose the contact information for the installer of the solar panels, which would make it easier for the buyer to contact the installer as needed in the future. It would also help protect a buyer from unknowingly assuming responsibility for a lease agreement related to solar panels installed on the property.”

Singer’s bill, S-3234, requires sellers of single-family homes with solar panels to include in the contract for sale, contact information for the business that installed the solar panels, and to indicate whether any lease agreement for the solar panels would be transferred to the buyer.

The legislation also requires a public education program to notify the public of the bill’s requirements and penalties.
