AbbaZabba said:   Has anyone seen anything with solar for renters? Just an idea I had, but similar to how many companies will put solar on your house and charge you a slightly lower amount for electricity, could you put solar on your rental (for cheap) monitor the output and charge the renters slightly less than the utility? Seems like a win/win
except now YOU become the utility...handling/collecting bills, being the go-between on disputes, yadda yadda...and now, most importantly, YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE POWER TO SHUT OFF SERVICES FOR NON-PAYMENT. no thanks.

as an aside - I put solar panels on a bunch of rentals a few years ago. I did it because a) the tax credits in my state were super generous, b) they increase the value of my houses somewhat, and c) they are good as advertisement for eco-conscious millennial types.

Yea it seems like the way to go is just to put the system on next time they are empty and up the rent by $100 a month.

good luck with that. unless they will save the renter >$100/mo, that high rent might be a hard sell.

EXCEPTION: This section shall not apply to any smoke alarm or combination smoke alarm that has been ordered by, or are in the inventory of, an owner, managing agent, contractor, wholesaler, or retailer on or before July 1, 2014, until July 1, 2015."

The mention of the word 'owner' sounds like its directed at landlords.  So, I'm interpreting it from a landlord perspective.

 

  
Thats in the context of "new listings" of smoke alarms by manufactuerer/.    Thats directed at sales of alarms.   

Not to mention the part you quote is actually an exception to the law.

I have no idea for Arizona, other than to tell you I've had best rates on my rentals from Allstate.

Your best bet is to call some independent brokers that write for many companies. Let them do the work of shopping it. I did, and I was still better with Allstate. You typically will need to move all your policies over to get best rates
