Solar Advocates Take Dim View Of New Fees

from the ridiculous dept

With all the electric power problems the state of California has had recently (no matter whose fault they really were) you would think they would be encouraging people to look for alternative sources of power. However, that does not appear to be the case. Since the state got itself locked into ridiculously high energy deals, they’re now looking to tax people who have “escaped” the system. In other words, if you’ve set up solar panels, so you don’t need to pay an electricity bill to PG&E, they now want to tax you. What’s amazing is that they don’t even try to hide the reason they’re doing this. The state admits that they’re paying too much for electricity and need some way to make up the bill.
