Court says solar panels may be a nuisance
A state appeals court has reversed a lower court decision on solar panels a couple installed at their home in an upscale housing development.
Neighbors of the property may have grounds to consider the panels a nuisance, which would violate the deed restrictions in place for all the properties in Seelye Estates, according to the decision filed March 28 by the State Supreme Court Appellate Division, Third Judicial Department.
The court decision is available below.
Several neighbors originally filed a lawsuit in March 2012 against Brian and Christa Haines of 44 Long Creek Drive after the couple installed six pole-mounted solar installations in the side yard.
