The ECIA has prevailed in the recent lawsuit regarding solar arrays. On Wednesday, Judge Francis Mathew granted the ECIA’s motion for summary judgment in the case. In his ruling from the bench, Judge Mathew indicated that allowing a ban on ground-based solar arrays, as sought by plaintiff Claudia Daigle, would violate state statute. He also held that the ECIA covenants do not prohibit solar collectors, including ground-based solar arrays. The ruling further vacated a motion by Ms. Daigle to bring Eldorado lot owners who have ground-based arrays into the suit. Judge Matthews stated that it was his determination that the ECIA Board and committees had acted appropriately in approving solar installations in the community and cited the significance of legislative and policy intent in favor of solar power on these issues. In arguing on behalf of the ECIA, attorney John Hays noted that the hearing was being held in Earth Day, providing an apt context for the deliberations.
