Portable solar panels for home?

I rent and would like to add solar panel to the home I rent.  I can not get the owner on board because she is not willing to pay to any degree for this service.  The owner has stated if I want to add them I can.

Therefore, my question is the a such thing as a removal solar home system; if not removal something that can be add and removed easily without leave damage.

Speaking as a landlord myself, I can understand your landlord's concerns.  Removing solar panels from a roof would likely require patching of holes.  Have you considered pole-mounted solar panels?  I suspect that your landlord would not have a problem with that, as it could easily be removed without significant damage to the property when you move out.  The only thing you might leave behind is the concrete foundation.     

Additionally, your landlord has nothing to gain from your system, and I doubt that she would be willing to share any of the costs of your system. 

Are you planning grid-tied, or off-grid?  Your landlord may have issues with the electrical work that needs to be done, especially with a grid-tied system.  Mabee she would accept a deposit to cover the cost of reversing those changes, in the event that you move out.  If you're considering off-grid, you don't really need to make wiring changes.  You can simply run wiring to the areas of the home where you wish to use electricity from the system.  That would probably be acceptable to your landlord.

Have you tried holding her down and scraping a knife and fork on a plate until she submits? No? Well, probably just as well. That stuff might work in the movies, but in real life somebody goes to jail.
How about this idea?
Obviously, there are details that would need to be worked out, but you seem like a reasonably intelligent person.
