Article Summary: 

The article discusses the importance of considering unfamiliar and environmentally friendly systems in reserve fund studies for condominiums. It presents a case of a condo with a ground-source geothermal system and solar panels that were not adequately accounted for in the reserve fund study. The article emphasizes the need for reserve fund planners to take extra steps to understand these atypical systems, including calling specialty contractors to gather information about maintenance procedures, replacement costs, and service lives. Property managers are advised to do their homework to ensure proper maintenance and operation of these unfamiliar systems.
