Both in subdivisions and condominiums, homeowners now have rights to install and use standby electric generators (a defined term). 202.019 (a & b). However, associations have a fairly large number of categories in which they can regulate. 202.019(c).
The associations must reasonably apply and enforce these rules, and cannot impose a rule on location if: (1) it increases the cost of installing the standby electric generator by more than 10 percent; or (2) it increases the cost of installing and connecting the electrical and fuel lines for the standby electric generator by more than 20 percent. 202.019 (d & e). This does not exhaust the rules in the new statute!
