I personally have condo and am currently fighting the homeowners association, the only down fall can be getting through the homeowners association, ten of us want to add solar to the apartment, however the home was built before 1978, so it should go through according to the CA Gov site:

The Solar Rights Act (CA Civil Code 714), enacted in 1978, bars restrictions by homeowners associations (HOAs) on the installation of solar-energy systems.

This was ammended about 6 months ago to allow HOAs to impose "reasonable" restrictions on solar arrays in common areas.

Note: if YOU own the roof (i.e. is roof maintenance your responsibility?), that simplifies the process quite a bit.
 
Yes, of course, and I accept that blame. In fact, i covet that blame. As does this tiny ad:
