ARB Guidelines

  Solar Panels

Panels mounted to the front side of roofs must be flush with the roof. Panels mounted to the rear side of roofs may be flush or elevated. If elevated, they will not extend above the roof peak so far that they are visible from the yards of facing houses across the streets or pipe stems. No other mounting locations are acceptable.


Solar panels must be kept within the perimeter of the roof structure and should not be within 1’ of the roof edge. The location of solar equipment (conduit, combiner boxes/junction boxes, inverters, disconnects, etc.) must be installed out of view and properly screened. Any racking/standoffs cannot be outside of the panels by more than several inches.
