I have solar panels on my home here in Ben Lomond, and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without a solar loan. The loan is dependent upon there being some type of ROI on the panels–mainly the ability to sell power back to the grid.

Why are CA utilities—led by PG&E—trying to kill this incentive?  

PG&E is proposing a $90 per month “solar connection fee” and an 80% reduction in the amount they reimburse solar owners for their excess energy during the day. A vote is scheduled for this week with the CPUC. Please encourage your readers to visit savecaliforniasolar.com and sign the petition to save rooftop solar!
